Hi everyone, I am Marygrace Haydock from Baltimore, MD. I graduated on March 26, 1992, Bachelor of Science in Physical Therapy in the Philippines. I started working in the U.S.A since 1995. I began working in New York for two years; then I moved to South Carolina for a year. I permanently stayed in Baltimore, where I found my passion in a geriatric population. My clinical experiences in a rehabilitation setting such as acute care, sub-acute, I.C.U. (Intensive Care Unit), home care and outpatient setting. I compassionately assisted my clients and expertly customized conventional physical therapy techniques with debilitating conditions such as neurologic, vascular, orthopedic, head injuries, Parkinson’s disease, dementia vestibular, lymphedema, dialysis, chronic wounds,
Christina G. Rossetti states, "For there is no friend like a sister, in calm or stormy weather, to cheer one on the tedious way, to fetch one if one goes astray, to lift one if one totters down, to strengthen whilst one stands." My name is Alyssa Snedden. I am nineteen years old and work as a Nurse Aide for the Inn at Chapel Grove. As Hailey's youngest sister, I have always looked up to her. Hailey has always provided me with love and understanding; therefore, I shall do the same in return during this bump in the road. She has never been the type of person to do anything that would cause our parents disappointment or heartbreak. These past couple months have been hard on our family but at the end of
I interviewed Beverly Stark. She works for Health Partners Hospice and Palliative Care as a hospice registered nurse (RN). The setting of her work varies. It is wherever her patient lives, which can range from a hospital, long term care, or in the patient’s home. She emphasized the importance of her team. She works with nurses, social workers, home health aids, chaplains, doctors, and hospice volunteers on a daily basis. She is part of what they call a core group. Each core group is made up of two RNs, one social worker, and a home health aid (HHA). The core group meets once a week to talk and update each other on their caseload. Additionally, they meet with the chaplain and a doctor weekly (B. Stark, personal communication, Sept 9, 2016).
I actually have a similar experience like you. I have a patient during my first semester that she was constantly in nervous/panic mood and always talk about how she wants to go home. I remembered the previous shift nurse and the nurse I followed have the same expressions and saying how the patient was just missing her alcohol (they were thinking she is alcoholic even though her medical record did not indicate she was a drinker). Anyway because we were taught to be non-judgmental on our patient, I decided to talk to the patient about why she was panic and wanted to go home. It ends up the patient is not alcoholic but she just don’t like to be in the hospital and constantly thinking about she may not be about to go home after all. I think many
A recent nursing graduate seeking for a role to utilise my effective communication and interpersonal skills, medical theoretical knowledge and compassion to develop partnerships with individuals to ultimately help and make positive changes to their lives and to your hospital. In addition, seeking to consolidate and expand my clinical skills as a new graduate nurse in the perioperative program. I believe that I am honest, hard-working, professional, dedicated to learning and strives to provide high-quality best patient care in fast-paced environments.
I have demonstrated the ability to follow the nursing process, including assessment, planning, implementation and evaluation during my first-year clinical placement and outside medical care facility settings. I applied the skill of nursing process when taking care of my family members. When my family was packing up our stuff and ready for home from camping at the Nitmiluk National park, my cousin who had always appeared healthy suddenly did not feel good. She said she had a terrible headache, chills and feeble. She was getting more stressed when everyone was panicking, crowding around her and asked how she was. As someone who had more understanding of medical care than the rest, I decided to step forward and used the knowledge to give care for her accordingly with the nursing process.
I have been having a challenging time making arrangements to interview the school nurse void of the student population. Besides working at the school she has two other positions plus family that consume her time. Amanda Nelson, a registered nurse who works in a Pediatrics Office, is the High School’s Coach for the Girls Cross Country and Track and Field Team. Also she is the wife to the Youth Pastor.
“When I grow up I am going to be a nurse.” Since I was was ten I knew I was going to be a nurse. I was going to graduate from high school and attend college with a nursing degree and live out my life as a nurse. I was so sure that nursing was the only thing that I wanted to do. However, my first semester of college has led me to question my goals and passions. In high school, I was driven to achieve at the highest level. I joined almost every club extending from theater to the National Honor Society in order to help pad my college and scholarship applications. I took dual credit classes and took extra classes in order to achieve a college prep certificate. When graduation day finally arrived I had won many scholarships and had got my acceptance letter to Truman. Over the summer, I planned what my life was going to be like on
I’d dressed hurriedly and, like the Hebrews fleeing Egypt, gave scant thought to what I should wear. Only after I’d reached Mercy Hospital did I realize I’d donned black fleece pants dotted with tiny pink hearts, topped it off with a lime green hoodie, and could do nothing about it now.
It was a little scary how fast you adjusted to Ben being in the infirmary full time, and how comfortable you were there. You had come to find the usual bustle of the nurses and patients didn’t really bother you anymore. It was almost like adjusting to a new home, where each creak in the floorboards underfoot feels wrong and foreign, but after a few weeks you don’t even notice it anymore. Even Madam Kalonia began to warm up to you, and it sure was nice to see her harsh frown lines become soft.
Finally, after weeks of work, Erica was able to take my break from her job as a nurse. Erica and her boyfriend, James, sit on the couch having a movie day where all they’re gonna do is sit in and watch movies. All the sudden the doorbell ring, making them both jump a little. James goes to check who it is and comes back with some flowers.
“You’re going to get bored.” was the response my previous employer and family gave when I accepted the Finance Director position at a community health clinic. Yet any job can be mundane if not innovatively shaped by arising opportunities. Unlike my previous auditing position which had less concrete hours, plenty of travel, and a variety of clients, this job was a standard Monday through Friday, 8 am – 5 pm, and no travel position in which I focus all my effort on one organization. I knew this organization was not the final stop on my career journey but it was an important stepping-stone along the way. As a bonus, the Finance Director position combined my skills and passion for helping others in a way auditing could not.
My passion for medicine is matched only by my love for people, so my decision to specialize in medicine and one day become a Nurse Practitioner comes from the heart. Nursing is just one of the numerous ways that the duty of giving back can be fulfilled. Every community, rather large or small, has people that can be reached with the love that nursing provides.
Ever since I was little I’ve always fantasized about being many things, like a singer or an actress, but one thing that always stayed consistent was my urge to be a part of the medical field. Being a nurse was something that I always felt was right for me. Until recently I didn’t know what kind of nurse I wanted to be, all I thought was that I just wanted to take care of everybody. I had no clue that being a neonatal nurse was my passion, but when I started babysitting and saw all these new babies being born into my family I knew that I would love nothing more but to take a path in working with them. I have always had a passion for helping others and I know that I would be an exceptional nurse by seeking the nursing program. I think I have
In the beginning of the clinical hour, I spends some time to look through every part of assessment, interviewing, diagnosing, outcome identification, planning, evaluating, documenting, reporting, and implmenting with the resident. I asked few of my fellow students and instructors for anything that I don't understand in the paper, and I tried to build an accurate application of blended skills and critical thinking without making any errors and misintepretation by understanding every steps of the nursing
