Nurses have several responsibilities. When you become a nurse, you are responsible for your patient's well-being and safety. You will have to care for chronically ill patients. Nurses work in a variety of health care settings.
In some point in time, during a person’s life they run into the question what do I want to be? They must find a career that they will enjoy or the time that they have spent in class and studying will be in vain. While doing research on the Georgia Career Information Center and from the constant idea throughout my life I have decided that I want to become a registered nurse. The type of work environment, the salary that the job provides and flexibility with work hours are all things that have drawn me to this occupation. I want to specialize in Neonatal. I have always enjoyed caring for people and making a difference to someone. When you become a nurse these are just some of the things that you are able to accomplish. Becoming a registered
For as long as I can remember, I have always dreamed of becoming a nurse. I knew that I wanted to be a nurse I was just not sure of what kind of nurse, but as I got older I grew to love babies and kids more and more. It then hit me, that I wanted to be a Neonatal Intensive Care Unit Nurse (NICU). Being born prematurely, and knowing by hearing stories and reading about the NICU has shaped me even more to want to be a NICU nurse. I know that with being a NICU nurse involves a lot of time and dedication, but that does not matter. I am always asked " How are you going to be able to handle being a NICU nurse", which leads to the response of "I know that it will be hard, but someone has got to do it". I have always been told that it takes someone
Do you dream of traveling around the United States, not only free of cost but also making money while doing it? While I already know that I want to be a nurse, travel nursing is a field that I have often considered because it brings two of my passions together: traveling and working as a registered nurse. Money is often a major factor in every decision we make, especially as college students, that’s why travel nursing is appealing to many students our age who dream of having money and wish they could travel more than just the annual family vacation. Today I am going to tell you why many people decide to be a travel nurse, which includes the benefits of it, the adventurous lifestyle, and finally how to actually become one.
Considering that would be about the time I start working, I should have a good chance at getting a good paying job early on. The employment change in the past thirty years, based on ten year increments, has been approximately 53,400 addition jobs each decade. Based on the steady increase in pay, job availability and colleges offering the courses I require to become a NNP, I should have plenty of opportunities to become a neonatal nurse practitioner where I want and at the pace I am wanting. In conclusion, I feel that I have picked a long journey, but also a successful
However, I can envision myself with my Master’s degree. I have a plan to always further my education to gain more knowledge and gain more responsibility or different kinds of responsibilities. Again, I will fill out the application and with receiving an acceptance letter I will know I did it. I will have to submit previous transcripts and plan financially for the school. I will also have emotional support but financially I will have saved for school and I should be on my own by then. My target completion date is December 2021. My other goal for five years is to gain lifelong learning by attending at least two nursing conferences. I not only want to go to learn but I want to go to for networking purposes, especially with my Master’s degree. I will stay connected with what is going on and will keep my ears open and eyes for posting for conferences each year. I plan to talk to my colleagues and attend meetings for a nursing organization I will be involved in that I mentioned in my paper previously. I have no target date of completion because it is not only a five year goal but a lifelong
I have always wanted to become a nurse, I find it interesting and I love helping people. Trying to put others before me. Though with some research, with the help of the California Career Zone Registered Nurses, it showed me the information on becoming a nurse practitioner, I could still work in pediatric care, as well as handle higher tasks. Such as studying patient history, diagnose and treat them, order and perform certain tests. Whereas a registered nurse just monitors, as well as administer medications. (California Career Zone). It is a very social working job, making sure patients understand their illness and treatments, bedside care is very important in this job. Helping others would help give me a fulfilling job in my career. I am looking forward to being in the medical
I am interested in pursuing a career in nursing. A career that really interests me is a neonatal intensive care nurse. This is a type of nurse that works in a neonatal intensive care unit. These nurses often work with infants who were born prematurely, born with birth defects, or infants who are having critical complications during the first month after birth. Infants in the neonatal intensive care unit require constant monitoring and are often being treated for life threatening diseases. According to The National Association of Neonatal Nurses (NANN) approximately 40,000 infants are born each year in the United States needing specialized NICU care. NICU nurses are always present when a baby is being delivered so they can provide immediate
In today’s fast paced work environments, people who live in the United States are too busy to take the time to travel, unlike Japan where Company’s send families on vacations with all expenses paid. Many people get too caught up in work and their everyday life, while some simply cannot financially afford it, or jobs give very minimum days to take time off. A philosopher by the name of Saint Augustine once said “The world is a book and those who do not travel only see one page” On the other hand, there are many visions of different places I would like to travel too, but even myself will get caught up in work or find it rather difficult to get time off. In addition, that is why I want to join traveling with work and become a traveling nurse.
The medical field is rapidly growing with so many different careers to choose from. There are many different things that you could specialize in. There are so many opportunities in the medical field for you to grow and become something bigger. A very interesting field to go in is a pediatric nurse. This specific career path interests me because when my little brother was 5 years old he suddenly woke up one morning with his body completely swollen. We immediately rushed him to the hospital. While at the hospital they told us that he had Nephrotic Syndrome. His kidneys weren’t properly working and he was leaking excess protein in his urine. Since that day I knew exactly what I wanted to do. I wanted to help others, especially kids in their
My love for nursing began early in my life; in high school, my continuing desire to become a nurse resulted in my applying and being accepted to Midwestern State University. There, I received a BSN and became a registered nurse. My experience at Midwestern prepared me for a successful career by instilling confidence within me as I joined the workforce. As my experience grew and years went by, I became eager to further my education and pursue my master's degree. Then life happened: the two-legged version that requires love, compassion, energy, and time. Now that my child is in school, with the support of my family, I am ready and dedicated to become a family nurse practitioner.
I have had a passion for becoming a healthcare provider for children for quite a while (for a long time). Children are one of the most important individuals of society because they are the future and will one day be in charge of the world. Their health at a young age is indicative to how their health will be as adults. Childhood has a great effect on how a person turns out to be so I hope to help children I hope to use prevention and education to preserve and restore the health of my patients. My career goals are to prevent children from having to spend time in hospitals or in pain and to help them live out their life and dreams to the fullest extent. Children play a very large role in their families, and when a child becomes sick, the whole family becomes distressed. Pediatricians not only heal children, but they help and prevent a family from suffering. I love medicine and children, and I hope to combine these two passions by becoming a pediatrician.
This paper explores five articles that report the problem of shortage in staffing in hospitals across the United States and support travel nursing as the solution. Travel nursing is the quickest, most beneficial, and long lasting solution. A travel nurse is a registered nurse (RN) who is employed by an agency, has experience, and travels to hospitals across the country. Travel nurses are then hired by a hospital through the agency and contract for a selected amount of time to temporarily fill in for any staff. A contract usually lasts 6 to 13 weeks and covers any expenses during the travel. Travel nurses differ from other nurses for several reasons but mainly the hiring process and workload they have. This paper expands the knowledge of a hospital
I want to be a neonatal nurse who takes care of newborn infants who were born prematurely. There are some procedures that may be needed for the care of the baby. What I know about a neonatal nurse is that you need to have a four year bachelors and masters of science in nursing degree. The reason I'm interested in this career is because I want to save lives and make a difference in the lives of the infants and their families. This career is something I will enjoy doing even if it can be sad at times.
Some long term goals I have for myself is to achieve my Master's Degree in Nursing. In the mean time I want to work as a nurse and use my skills and learn as much as I can on the job and to gain experience in the nursing world
