I believe that doing a number of researches into inpatient day-to-day care can build up positive direction for the role of mental health nurses.
After the course, I plan to translate the skills and knowledge obtained in developing and writing research proposals that attracts funding. Currently, the MRC/UVRI unit is involved in efforts aimed at reducing and controlling infectious diseases, especially HIV: testing candidate vaccines, assessing treatment options and coming up with solutions for better management of infectious diseases. Therefore, I hope to use the acquired exposure and research skills to contribute to ongoing research at the unit. I trust that with the immense knowledge obtained through my master’s studies, I will be able to work independently while conducting scientific research. I intend to use my skills and time to ensure continuity of knowledge by building capacity
I am amazed, and pleased with how much I have grown in the last 7 weeks in this course. Personally, I have obtained a higher level of self confidence, a stronger determination of college success, and most importantly a stronger relationship with Christ. Professionally, this course has helped me by understanding more about time management, and goal setting, which is so important to a successful retail manager. Academically spaeking, I was astonised in this area most of all in my growth at GCU. I am no longer afraid of writing, grammar, nor English. Looking back at my writings, as opposed to now, I am doing much, much better, I understand I have a ways to go in learning about writing, but at least I realize better writing is obtainable for me.
I agree with you; this course helps us to reflect and recollect everything we have learned to put it into application. I wish the capstone class was once we completed Data Acquisition and Analysis, Managerial Finance, and Marketing and Brand Management. These courses would have been helpful for those who chose option 2 (business plan).
Despite my feelings about the field, my nurse this week was great and you could tell that she loved her job. She showed preparedness and interdisciplinary teamwork as soon as we arrived to the agency by attending
Nice to see again this class. When I needed to finish refresh course in order to meet the qualification for Texas nursing board, I did on the telemetry floor for 80 hours. I think it is not enough time to recognize what is about and how can take care of patients in the telemetry flood. It was really good time to refresh my knowledge and nursing practice. I hope you keep your career and reach your goal.
The nursing profession has evolved tremendously over the years. Although we often work as a part of a health care team, as nurses, our role is so critical to the clients we serve that it cannot be replaced by any other team member. We are constantly striving to expand our capabilities, either through formal education or years of experience. We are fortunate enough to be part of an influential and rewarding field that enables us to impact the lives of a diverse community on a physical, mental, and emotion level.
practicum I was able to lead a professional development workshop about understanding poverty in order to better connect with our school population. This experience helped me develop my participative style of leadership. I was able to teach but also learn from the faculty in an open collaborative forum that helped us all make improvements to our craft. This experience taught me how to present to a faculty in a fun, engaging way that encouraged their participation. I learned that I should involve the faculty more in discussion among themselves and help them learn more from each other’s experiences.
I spent my time doing my practicum at Epworth Villa in Oklahoma City. I worked under Laura Garret who is the Director of Resident Life. She made sure to assign me to a different area of the facility every few days. By doing this I was able to experience the Independent Living, Assisted Living , Nursing Home Department and Epworth at Home Areas.
During my internship experience in my school, I had the opportunity of seating in a pre-conference and a post-conference with a new educator who was being formally evaluated. The steps that I took for the observation, reflection, and the sharing of the findings with the teacher are almost identical to what I experienced in my school. However, the evaluation process differs from teachers who are new to the system from those who have been teaching there for years. There is no feedback or expectation for growth for veteran teachers.
During my time in this class I’ve learned a few more interested things about myself education and profession wise. Far as my goals in going for my MBA after this semester was a tough choice, because I didn’t know what career I wanted to go into. However; I realize building my resume, and getting an MBA will not only make me more marketable as an employee but will not close me in a box when seeking employment or having an opportunity to possibly work for myself. This class gave great insight on giving us a chance to share our thoughts on subjects like “Leadership or what is the meaning of GRIT?” it gave a person like me a voice to express my thoughts along with my fellow classmates.
… This afternoon I spent about a half an hour on the phone with Mrs. Poirier discussing the details of my lecture that I will prepare for the freshman students for the Essentials of Dental Radiography didactic class. Students will be reading the chapter before the actual lecture so that they will be familiar with the subject. Mrs. Poirier asked to use the student's text book as a main source for the lecture and come up with some activity that actively engages the students during the lecture. She also suggested creating a short quiz that I can hand out to the students to assess their understanding of the lecture material. This quiz may be graded and used as one of their pop-quiz depending on Mrs. Poirier’s decision. The lecture time will be 30 minutes and ten minutes for class activity after the PowerPoint presentation.
I have been an RN for five years and have a wide variety of clinical experience under my belt. Progressing from a floor nurse on a med-surg floor to an ICU nurse in a level one trauma center has helped shape my skills in critical thinking and problem solving. As the acuity in patients increased, my role at bedside demanded more knowledge in pathophysiology and early recognition of impending problems. I was able to realize first hand the importance of patient advocacy and how hard that can be able to obtain with limited resources of MD availability. I found that patient care was often interrupted or delayed due to this limitation. The only constant about healthcare is that it is ever changing and with the trend to give nurses more autonomy, I found that this has been my
When faced with a challenge, typically I believe there is no mountain that cannot be faced with the power of Christ and a touch of determination. This project was so different. I went into this so motivated and found many struggles along the way. The comfortability of explaining to others around me did not phase me, and I looked forward to a new experience, to a point. I also felt overwhelmed, annoyed and more negative towards the project than motivation, but I knew it would soon be over. I relied on the Bible for scripture and found, “So we don’t look at the troubles we can see now; rather we fix our gaze on things that cannot be seen. For the things we see now will soon be gone, but the things we cannot see will last forever” (2
According to Kelleher (2016), Bandura defines self-efficacy “as one’s belief in his or her ability to perform a given task” (p. 70). Learning is the acquisition of knowledge, skills, and abilities that an individual accumulates throughout their lifespan. Learning is established by a series of tasks, observations or modeling, and environmental factors. It can also be influenced by prior knowledge. It is strongly impacted by one’s culture, beliefs, values, and socioeconomical status. Part of the learning process is how information is encoded and stored in the brain as short-term or working memory, and the ability to recall information is vital to student success. From an educational standpoint, teachers are taught every student is unique with a learning style all their own.
