I interviewed my primary care physician Dr. Michelle Class, who is a pediatrician in the private practice of Lori McAuliffe, M.D., P.A. Dr. Class has worked in the field of pediatrics since completing Medical school at The University of Florida and a 3-year residency to become a board certified pediatrician. She offers primary care to children from birth till the age of twenty-one, and provides routine physicals to chart growth and development, well-visits, and professional consultation, diagnosis and treatment for chronic and temporary illness or other health issues. All efforts work toward preventing disease and injury amongst children, the primary goal of all pediatricians in the field of health care. The practice at which she works also allows doctors to utilize epidemiological resources and inform patients about current health trends regarding illness, current school, county regulations updates on health and vaccination deadlines, and basic understanding of childcare, hygiene, and nutrition practices for children and parents. I chose to interview Dr. Class because she is an excellent doctor, who I have been privileged to have over the years. She has personally given me her very best whenever my health was poor, as well as been a wonderful person who truly cares for her patients physical and mental wellbeing. Her passion and dedication to the craft of pediatric medicine are evident in the quality of care and service she
The nurse I chose to interview has been a family friend for a while, as she has worked closely with my mother for several years. She is the first nurse I met when I decided I was interested in going into the nursing field, and she is actually the person who encouraged me to apply to Truman State University’s nursing program. I was confident that she would be able to share her capacity of nursing knowledge and wisdom with me when I asked if I could interview her. I will expand on our interview which took place in her office at work throughout the next couple of pages, and to keep confidentiality, I will allude to her by her initials, J.W.
For my interview, I spoke with one of the Nurse Practitioners (NP) that I interact with while working my shift at the hospital. I will call her Terri Smith because although I asked to use her quotes in my paper, I did not think to ask for permission to use her actual name. Where I work, many of our internal medicine physicians are hospitalists. During the night, they are covered by the umbrella of Quest Care. There are several NPs that work under the afore mentioned physicians and are there, on-call, when needed for their clinical expertise. It is nice, because even though I can’t develop much of a relationship with the doctors whose patients I work so hard to take care of, I get to have the opportunity to grow strong bonds with the NPs that I see almost every shift.

Arc of the Ozarks is a local human service organization providing help to people in the local communities with physical and mental disabilities. The main local offices for the Arc can be found in Springfield, Joplin, and Monett, Missouri. Interviewing someone from the Arc could have been done over the phone, by e-mail, and an in-person interview. The in-person interview seemed to be more appropriate because it would allow me to interact with the people who work for the organization and possibly see interaction with clients. Interviewing one in person also helps to show the kind of dedication put into the work provided by the organization.

My Profile of Business is on Nurses; but more specifically Flight Nurses. I chose to do a profile of business on flight nurses because I wanted to thoroughly know what the job and work environment entails, as well as the experience, education, and certifications requirements for the field. I also wanted to know the salary and characteristics of a good flight nurse. The information will be invaluable when I start on my path to becoming a flight nurse. In order to make the report well rounded I interviewed Lynn Manning. Lynn is currently a Nightingale Air Ambulance Flight Nurse at Norfolk General Hospital; she has been a registered nurse for 20 years and a flight nurse for four years. I used the information from the interview and websites such as Flight Nurse HQ, Nurse.com, and OSFHealthcare.com to create an in-depth profile of a Flight Nurse.

One day when I was in the 8th grade studying in Mexico, one of my professors assigned the class to interview someone that worked in the field of our chosen future profession. Since I wasn't certain of what I wanted to become or study in the university, I decided to interview our family pediatrician that took care of me and my sister when we were kids. The reason why I decided to interview our pediatrician was because it had been one of the options that I had during the assignment, nothing else. Our pediatrician's character and charisma made it easier for me to complete my assignment, yet it was his character and humble heart that created confidence with every child he saw. I always believed that his profession was simple, however when I took
