During the Personal Wellness Assignment, various factors influenced my fitness, nutrition, energy, and sleep numbers. I noticed that my nutrition, energy, and sleep scores were higher on Saturdays and Sundays because I didn’t have school on those days so I had more time to eat and sleep. My energy scores were high on those days because I was happy that I didn’t have school. I also notice that my fitness scores are low most of the time, except on Tuesday. This is because I have an extracurricular activity only on Tuesday. My graph shows that when my sleep scores are high, so are my energy scores. This indicates that I have more energy when I sleep for a longer time. My graph also shows that the nutrition and energy scores are exactly the same.
For as long as I could remember my ultimate goal in life has always had to deal with health care; I want to help as many people as I can in a variety of different aspects. Regardless if it is nursing or a physician assistant this is a career choice I’ve always saw myself pursuing. I could easily see myself waking up everyday and surrounding myself in a hospital setting; I’m not sure what it is but I enjoy that fast pace environment the hospital has and the variety of different environments I could put myself in while I take care of my patients. I hope to have personal, one on one relationships with patients because I find establishing close relationships with any patient you have helps in regards to their own comfort. I’m mildly content with being managed, I do not necessary want to manage others; I find I enjoy having a structure and someone to tell me what I am doing right or wrong appose to it being myself correcting my own actions without any guidance.

The practice of public health most aligns with my passion for science, culture, and the community. The aspects of public health that I am most drawn to is the opportunity to work with diverse and underserved patient populations, and the emphasis that is placed on disease prevention through healthy lifestyle.

I took a variety of classes that expanded my perspective of the role of nutrition in disease prevention and treatment. Through my studies in anthropology, I learned about the complex role
From the very first day that I have been in the nursing program, holistic, patient centered care has been at the forefront of our education. Though this concept may seem simple in definition, in execution, I found found it to be much more complex. Through my clinical experience this semester, I have had many great opportunities to experience what holistic care looks like and I think it is incredibly important to recognize exactly how to implement it into everyday care. By utilising techniques such as effective time management, collaboration and being self-aware, I feel as though I have been able to expand my skillset and provide care that has been appropriate and met patient needs.

Developing my holistic nursing practice or looking at who I have become as a nurse today has been a journey that has helped defined who I am today. When I look back at when I originally became a nurse over 16 years ago, I am proud of who I have become. When I finished nursing school and began my job as a new nurse I thought I had all the tools to be the best nurse I could be. I understood the nursing process, I recognized the skills needed at the bedside to be a nurse, and I felt I had great nursing documentation skills. Soon I learned that wasn’t all of what I needed.
In fact, I have started practicing the diverse areas of the holistic nursing, such as holistic communication, holistic ethics, holistic education and holistic theories, and self-care, and so on. Moreover, unlike the past, I have encompassed compassion, empathy, sympathy and friendliness to a greater extent in my daily professional chores to produce more constructive health related outcomes.

My academic goals are to complete my coursework at UIW with a AS degree in Health Science with a focus on nutrition by the summer of 2017.

I am a sophomore now at UIW with credits that can be transferred to an accredited school, in which I will need to be able to take my exam for licensing in the state of Texas for a registered Dietitian/Nutrition.
As I begin my career as an advanced practice registered nurse (APRN), I will have to decide what philosophies I will incorporate into my practice. I believe that holistic care is an effective way to manage the care of a patient. It will also help me learn more about my patients. This concept looks beyond a person’s physical disease, and it includes all aspects of their health and well-being. It requires a provider to consider the patient’s spiritual beliefs, mental needs, emotional status, and environmental influences. I believe that spiritual healing is a major component of physical healing. By incorporating holistic care into my practice, I believe I will provide the patient with the best care available. According to Joel (2013), APRNs that

“Follow your passion; it will lead you to your purpose,” Oprah Winfrey. My passion leading me to a degree in healthcare management has been the love I have for my son. Becoming a single mother, shortly before my son turned two-years-old, was life altering. Moving back in with my family, realizing I had no income, and no longer the team effort from his father, was an indescribable sense of failure as a parent.
What is wellness? “Wellness is an active process of becoming aware of and making choices toward a healthy life. Wellness is also a process for change and growth” (Health Topic – What is wellness?).
