These were valuable skills that I would later expand and use daily. I was a member of National Nursing Home Association and was certified in Minimal Data Set (MDS) a tool used to assess and care plan for nursing home patients. After 13 years of employment at the nursing home; I moved to do sub-acute care in a rehabilitation facility. This was a fast pace unit where the patients were discharged to home after their rehabilitative services. During my employment, I learned the role of Nurse Liaison in the hospital where I worked with discharge planners to move patient from the hospital to the Rehabilitation Center. I fine-tuned my assessment skills and advance care planning. It was here that I began to function in the role of Staff Development and Employee Health Nurse. These various roles help me to build my practice and develop a plan for other roles in nursing.
Some of my strengths are being able to apply which frame of reference goes with each individual treatment. Another strength is that I have a strong grasp of the concept of the three base ranges of motions and how to use a goniometer. I am also solid with the functional aspect of transferring patients.

My talent has impacts in the work improvement that influence, patient safety and on how to comply with other stakeholders.
The opportunities that I would provide for workers to express their feelings and emotions are: First of all being aware if one of your workers is upset or not their usual self. Ask whether workers would like to discuss their concerns with me and what I can do to help. They may prefer to send an email, where they have more time to look at what they really want to say. Ask what they would prefer and what they are more comfortable with.

Due to the “human skills” that I naturally bestow, I am able to empathetically address needs of people in states of vulnerability while maintaining professionalism. I have to maintain relationships with my client’s, family members, care providers, and participating vendors within the community. I always have to show compassion for my clients and have empathy when necessary in order to build trusting effective relationships that are built on trust. I have to be dependable and a good listener in order to locate the services that are deemed to be beneficial for the client at that given time. My client’s need to be able to rely on the fact that I will come through and make sure that every need, fear, or question that the client may have will hopefully be resolved in a timely fashion.
Communication differences – It is important to know the children in your school well as some may have communication difficulties which are not apparent on first meeting a child. A good example of this is a child who is on the Autistic Spectrum as their interpretation of social situations and abstract language tends to be greatly underdeveloped. You must speak plainly and with no ambiguity so as to no cause confusion.

Children with speech and language difficulties
I feel that I excel in listening to patients/people when they are speaking. I pick up on the details well and am very good at making the other person I am communicating with feel like my full attention is on them.
A strength that I upheld within this domain was through collaborating interprofessionally to identify and address my clients learning needs. For example, while caring for a postoperative day one client, I was able to observe and work along side the physiotherapist to determine the level of activity required for the client too progress within their health and healing and move towards their goals for discharge. By observing this interaction, I gained insight into the limitations of my client if any, and what I could do as the nurse to help within the process of healing.
