How did you become interested in the Graduate Nurse Residency Program at the University of Colorado Hospital' Before I entered school for nursing I wanted to confirm that nursing was a career I wanted to pursue. I volunteered at University Hospital on the IMCU to gain a feel for what the environment was like. Since then, I have had clinical placements at multiple other facilities, but I have never observed the same level of cooperation between the nurses as I did at University. In addition, I am excited about the amount of support that the Residency Program provides for its new graduates.I desire to be a truly great nurse, and I feel that the best way to become a gifted nurse is to learn from other experienced nurses. Though I have learned an astonishing amount in my accelerated program, there are many things that I still have left to learn. I believe that the Residency Program will provide me with the information, and environment that I need to increase all aspects of my nursing skills.
2. Please describe your value and beliefs about nursing. I believe that a nurse?s most important role is that of a patient advocate. It is our responsibility to make ensure they that they receive quality care by following the five rights of medications administration, by charting accurately so that trends can be seen, and by constantly assessing their physical condition. In addition, it is our responsibility to listen to the patient, to help educate them, and to help them create workable plans for getting healthier. As an advocate I believe we have a duty to stand up for what we believe is best for our patients. I also believe that we have the power to help people heal.
3. What strengths have you developed from past clinical or health care related experiences' I am very comfortable with my patients, and am quickly able to build rapport with them. Most of the time I am able to read the patient?s mood and needs, and adjust my care and teaching accordingly. I truly enjoy my interactions with patients, and believe that I can help make their hospital stay easier. I have also learned how adaptable I am in this past year.
Every five weeks I was at a new clinical placement, learning where things were and the nursing role. Through working with many great nurses I have developed my own organization format, learned how to prioritize my patients needs. In addition, I pay close attention to detail, and am constantly improving my assessment skills. I also know when I need help with a situation, and am quickly able to find support staff whom I can ask for assistance. I have also found that curiosity can be a real strength in nursing, for it helps me probe into questions until I truly understand the answer.
4. Who would you identify as a nursing leader or mentor that has influenced your development in nursing, and how will this influence impact you professional nursing career' My first ever day of clinical I was petrified as I walked on to the Labor and Delivery floor at PSL. Once I met Vanessa my clinical instructor I was much more at ease. She was very calm, and yet knew an amazing amount about the human body. Vanessa asked us questions that forced us to think things through, and kept probing until we were able to decipher the underlying reason for our answer. Looking back I realize how little I knew, and how scared I was to interact with the patients. Yet, Vanessa was constantly apprising all of us, letting us know that we were too hard on ourselves.
I strongly believe that she understood the power she had over us, and how disastrous it would have been had we received harsh criticism. I believe that nurses have similar power to help of patients heal. When we show that we care about them as a person and give them respect it has been shown to help improve healing times. Furthermore we have to help them think for themselves, by education about their health problems, and creating plans that will work for them to help improve their health.
Finally, I have always tried hard to take her lead and remain calm, even when my insides are in knots. I have found that patients and coworkers respond much better to me if I stay calm, focused and secure of myself much like Vanessa. I hope that someday I will have her calm, caring, knowledgeable and confident manor when helping my patients.
5. Describe your goals as you begin your professional nursing career' My goals for my first year of nursing are fairly basic. I plan on passing the NCLEX-RN and gaining valuable on the job experience working as a nurse. One of my goals is to be more familiar with medication, their actions and their adverse reactions. In addition, I hope to increase my understanding of the human body, and Pathophysiology, and thus increasing my ability to plan interventions that will help my patients heal.
In addition, I plan on starting Spanish classes because I deeply value the importance of communication. My long term goals are less solid. I foresee myself going back to school after a couple of year, but exactly for what I could not say. Through working in a teaching hospital I am confident I will discover an area that I wish to specialize in. I am excited to learn what areas of nursing I excel in, and go where my passions lead me.
6. Describe any leadership or other type activities you may have participated in that have contributed to your professional growth. During this year I have had the opportunity to interact with people in a wide variety of settings. I spent time volunteering at a nursing home, visiting hospice patients, and working with a group to help build a hiking trail. In addition, I have had many interactions with patients from all walks of life; young pregnant teens, Russian immigrants, recently paralyzed grandfathers, community members getting their children?s immunization, and depressed veterans trying to deal with reality. Each of these interactions has helped shape the nurse that I will become.
They are all so wonderful, unique, and many times challenging people to interact with. As nurses I think it is essential that we treat the person as a whole. These interactions have affected my life, and forced me to learn from people that I had very little in common with. My respect for people is deeper now, and I know that I can enjoy giving quality care to anyone who needs it. Nothing could have contributed to my professional growth more than the amazing people I have met this year.
7. During the one year Graduate Nurse Residency Program you will be required to attend monthly Residency Classes, Clinical Specialty Classes and work a staff nurse schedule, which may include 12-hour rotating day/night/weekend and holiday shifts.
You will also be required to sign a contract stating your commitment to work for one full year following the one-year Graduate Nursing Residency Program. Is there any reason you would not be able to fulfill this commitment' I do not foresee any reason that would make it were I could not fulfill a two year contract. I understand that at University I may not always have the shifts that I would most desire, but the benefit of the additional support and classes make this possible sacrifice well worth it. This year of Accelerated nursing at Regis, and prepared me well for juggling class, clinical time, and a personal life.
8. Is there any other information you would like to share with us' I hope that the previous essays have expressed the profound desire I have to be a respected, component nurse. I also believe that I have made my wish to work for University clear, for University is my top choice for future employment.51Due网站原创范文除特殊说明外一切图文著作权归51Due所有；未经51Due官方授权谢绝任何用途转载或刊发于媒体。如发生侵犯著作权现象，51Due保留一切法律追诉权。更多论文代写范文欢迎访问我们主页 www.51due.com 当然有论文代写需求可以和我们24小时在线客服 QQ:800020041 联系交流-M
