My goal since day one of high school was to join and complete the Certified Nursing Assistant license’s program. I kept my grades up all years and my attendance sharp so I would be a step ahead of other applicants. Before I knew it, I was starting senior year which meant it was time to turn in my application. The application had many questions; the normal ones like who, what, and why. I turned the application into the teacher and the wait began to see if I was accepted. Little did I know that this was the first of many anxious waits this year. Completing my goal of becoming a licensed CNA would become one of the most nerve racking process in my life.
I've very adaptive to new technology such as programs used for online documentation and electronic MARS. Other registered staff in my unit often comes to me for problem solving and troubleshooting with our online documentation program. I always put my patients first and I take the time to listen to my patients & families, no matter how busy my schedule may be. I work well under pressure and in a solo or team environment. I strive to become more knowledgeable in nursing in order to provide the best care I can to my clients In order to excel at my profession and passion I need to do everything I can to make myself better. As part of that, I did not stop with Bachelors, I did my masters, then I did Medical-surgical certification & I am also certified preceptor, have certification from UCF. My upbringing developed my core beliefs of community, family, loyalty, compassion and honesty. It also taught me that all things worthwhile require hard work. I love being a nurse, but recognize my yearning for more. I love nursing and have enjoyed my time as a floor nurse although my work experiences are acutely based, I have observed the direct relation between primary and acute care. As a nurse primarily working with patients, I have observed how patient miseducation, miscommunication, and
Nursing is more than traveling room to room, patient to patient, to provide medical care. Nursing is about treating the patient with the utmost respect and compassion. It’s more than providing medical care, but supporting the patient and family. Being a nurse only requires a bachelor degree and a “RN”
I am a CNA, I am the person who helps your loved ones, children and maybe even yourself with everyday aspects. I am the person who helps your grandmother get ready in the morning or helps your uncle eat his lunch. I am slapped, bit and yelled at more times than not. I change diapers and clean up vomit daily. I wake up early and stay up late to help you when you whenever you need me. With all of this hard and tiring work comes the rewarding parts. I get to play card games like Go Fish and learn new ones from the residents like Bridge. I sit and talk with residents and hear their stories from when they are young. I get to soothe your premature baby and sit with her as she heals and grows until she goes home. I play board games and color with children who are suffering from chronic illness and cancer. I hold your mothers hand as I tell her it’s okay to go and that she is so loved. I am a CNA, and though I may not be for long I put my entire heart and soul into it and love every second. I have long desired for the chance to work in a medical setting and working in an assisted living home has made me realize that the job comes with so much more than the job description entails.
I am a hardworking student who is highly motivated to go to college and pursue a nursing career. I try my best to be the most responsible person I can be by always completing all the duties and responsibilities that need to be completed. I am able to learn and
My new Begging to the future, Start’s off here at Job Corp’s. The reason why I have chosen to come to San Diego job corps is because I heard of their amazing program, and all the opportunities they have to offer here .To further my education I have chosen the trade CNA. Job corps has much more to offer than just education they have extracurricular activities that appeal to me and my everyday life. My studies consist that I must obtain a lot of human Health information and learn about how to help and interact with patients. To make them feel more at home while there staying under my care. Studying nursing assistant requires you to attend three-month courses that include practical and theoretical training. You must pass a Clinical
The medical field of nursing is based on servitude in God’s mission and through the means of compassion. Our missional goals must align with God’s (Wright, 2012). Nursing consists of care and compassion for the disadvantaged, weak, sick, and injured. This is in addition to the pursuit of high standards in professionalism, articulated in the delivery of a valuable service that is based on unique knowledge and experience, performed ethically, and practiced autonomously. The major characteristic of compassion is from God and how it relates to this world of professionalism is seen through nursing. Any job that advances God’s work in the world is a Godly choice (Col. 1:16-20).
I have worked as a Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA) for about two years. My naturally caring and compassionate nature has helped me to excel in this field. I find myself inherently invested in each of my resident’s lives, and I take deep pride in being an advocate for residents that no longer have a voice of their own. Being a CNA has taught me how to work as a part of a team, in partnership with my residents, fellow aides, nurses, family members, and physicians. Interdisciplinary teamwork is an important aspect of the PA role, and I believe my work as a CNA has strengthened my teamwork abilities immensely. Working in a nursing home piqued my interest in geriatrics and led me to become a volunteer for Hospice. This experience allowed me to spend more time with patients, and it was truly a privilege to be a part of their last moments in life. While I believe these have been excellent roles in healthcare, they have certainly reinforced my will to continue down the medical pathway even further. Becoming a PA would allow me to play a bigger, more important role in patient’s
Learning to becoming a CNA was the greatest opportunity and experience I could have done for myself. It has changed me as a person and as a caregiver. I have built amazing relationships with my residents non like any other. They have become my family. Because of my residents, I have learned a great lesson. The best way to give the best quality care is to treat people as if they were family; and that is what has brought me to become a great certified nursing assistant. I have such great relationships with my residents and because of that I am able to see the impacts I have on people. I am able to see their faces light up when I walk into their rooms. Everyday has brought great joy to my life and to be a part of a person’s life, like I have been,
I believe that through medicine I would be able to put other people’s needs before my own, and continue caring and making a difference in people’s lives. As a newly certified nurse aide (CNA), I have been able to begin this journey. As a CNA, I get to leave work knowing that I directly made an impact on someone else’s life. Not only has becoming a CNA changed my patient’s lives but it has also changed mine for the better. They give me the opportunity to constantly challenge myself, build relationships with them, and develop new skills. In the time that I have been a CNA I have had the opportunity to develop many different qualities including: adaptability, compassion, emotional stability, patience, and problem-solving skills. Each of these skills I find to be important qualities that every PA should
After I graduate, I am trying to get into the RIBN Program through Asheville Buncombe Technical Community College and Western Carolina University. I know becoming a nurse is the right job for me because no matter what I am going through in life someone else’s life matters more than mine. Recently I just finished my 40 hours at the Laurels of Greentree Ridge Nursing Home; this is time that I had to spend with my Nursing Fundamentals class to be able to become a Certified Nursing Assistant. I can honestly say it was nothing compared to what I thought it was going to be. I am one who always does more than I am asked to. I go over and beyond to make someone feel comfortable because no one wants to be in a nursing home. I knew becoming a nurse was
I have been a student at Leon high school since Pre-k year and in a couple of months I will be graduating from here. After graduation I plan to attend Tyler Junior College in hope of earning an associate’s degree in nursing as a licensed vocation nurse (LVN). After receiving my degree I would like to work at a clinic or the hospital in Tyler or Dallas. To help me achieve this goal I have prepared myself by taking three dual credit classes this year and a nursing class as a certified nurse’s assistant(CNA). In my nursing class I have complete hours in the classroom and certain hours working on the floor at Groesbeck LTC. This experience has helped me decide that being in the nursing field is really what I want to do. Contributing to the community I has

Neonatal nurses spend their career working with babies, those that are healthy and those that are not. Working with newborns is guaranteed to have its challenges, especially for those particular nurses who choose to work in the neonatal intensive care unit. The neonatal intensive care unit, or NICU, is where
First, what brought me to the nursing profession. All through my childhood years I wanted to be just like my mom, a daycare provider. I wanted to be able to take care of young kids and not have to sit in a desk all day. I never thought of another profession until my grandma, a nurse, had me shadow her for an entire day. I learned all about the different specialties and jobs in a hospital. After that day I had an interest in the health field but I wasn't sure what health profession was fit for me. About a year ago I started working at the nursing home in my hometown for some experience in the health field and to be around health professionals. After working there for four months I tested out and became a CNA. I absolutely loved every part of working there. I helped all the residents with their daily needs such as dressing and toileting. In the nursing home I worked at, there were three different parts; assisted living, long term, and rehab and hospice. I was able to work in the long term care unit but most of the time I worked in the rehab
