Why have you chosen to pursue a career in nursing?
My desire to pursue a career in nursing only grew as I became part of the healthcare field.

-making differences in peoples lives, whether it’s through teaching, providing care or supporting a family. Each aspect of care allows me to give personally of myself and feel rewarded at the end of the day, knowing I made a difference. Being a nurse is one of the most rewarding and meaningful careers that one can have. Nurses make the difference in people’s lives by what they do and what they don’t do.
-being challenged
-healthcare is about lifelong learning. Began as an LNA (inspired by my mom) and have gone on to achieve my LPN. Am ready to begin the next step in furthering my education and career as an RN.
-grandfather passing away and seeing my mother’s compassion and love confirmed that I wanted a career where I made a difference.
-although my mother planted the seed, it was the patients
-You get a tremendous amount of responsibility and when you see your patients improve, you know it is because of what you did
- I taught my patients how to improve their own hygiene and health care and got satisfaction from watching them make the changes I suggested.
-On a regular job I give patients advice, comfort the dying, teach patients how to care for their disease processes. Where else can you get such job satisfaction to know that every day you influence peoples lives for the better, their health for the better and even prolong their lives based on what you do and say

...between people in our rapidly advancing generation. In Paul Dooley and Winnie Holzman’s play Post-Its (Notes on a Marriage), we watch as two young people who are in love and newly married, begin to leave each other post its notes when they have no time for communication with one another. The author successfully tells an amazing love story using a unique means of communication. According to Anne Maydan Nicotera, “communication is critical to inter-personal relationships” (Nicotera). The notes vary from topics such as one not wanting to wake the other as they leave early for work, for tasks that need to be completed throughout the day. The audience, through the reading of the post- its notes views the couple’s life as it goes through the early stages of a relationship, to having a child, to a downhill slide of their relationship, the steady reconstruction of a marriage, and eventually it goes on until one of the two passes on. By leaving these post-its notes, the unnamed couple manages to have a basis of communication upon which they both are able to agree upon. They manage to find a convenient and effective way to convey what they need to say to one another through post-its notes, and even though things get rough, and arguments ensue, they find their strength and return to one another. Their relationship is refound with a clean slate, and although there are occasional spats in the notes, the audience can see that their relationship is much easier once they settled their......

Lpn to Rn Role

...Transition: LPN to RN…Is it the right decision for everyone? The debate is as old as the professions themselves, and in a society where success is most often measured by “climbing the corporate ladder” the choice between becoming an LPN/LVN or an RN is not always easy. While an RN license provides more opportunities for promotion, an LPN/LVN license can be earned more quickly with less time needed in school. Nurses at all levels face the challenge of balancing work with school, family obligations and other external commitments, and often, these factors play a large role in determining available finances and time available for educational pursuits. For people considering a nursing career, RN programs are sometimes excluded as most classes are daylight programs. Accelerated and evening programs exist, but clinicals and preceptorships are generally offered during the day. LPN training programs, being shorter to begin with, are much more flexible and usually offer part-time, night, and weekend hours. As people evaluate the career choice that’s right for them, educators must work to match the student with the best career fit, and it’s equally important for future nurses to understand the requirements and potential benefits of careers and an LPN/LVN and RN. Licensed practical and licensed vocational nurses, known as LPNs or LVNs, depending on the state in which they work, provide basic nursing care under the supervision of a registered nurse or physician. Typically tasks such as......

...next semester; I think you didn’t know how to sing when the note is really high. And the teacher will help you about this, and your chin always up when you sing but you never realized that.” So at the very beginning of this semester I changed a class to this class, and want to improve my singing skill. And just like my mother said that I can’t put my chin down when I was singing. And professor also pointed out this problem. And my facial expression was not very rich when I was singing, that seems like that I didn’t put myself in to that song. Just like a mission to complete. I worked on the chin problem and also the sight singing. Fortunately, the experience of playing the piano made me identify the tone accurate. And I don’t have to spend much time on working this. Therefore, I work hard on controlling my chin, and I still can’t adapt it at the very beginning. But through my hard working I can really handle it now. And as for sight singing, during this semester, I often singing before a mirror and practice my facial expression. And it was working. Now I think my facial expression is much better than before. And there is another point, when there was a really high note that I can’t reach it by my voice before. However, during this semester, I learned how to use my throat to reach that high note. Although I can’t describe how to do this in English, I really felt that was really changed. I can reach some really high note now. Time passed really fast, and this semester will......

...Notes : In the poem, as well as the movie, the two major female characters are Wealthow and Grendel's mother. Unlike the movie, neither of these characters have large roles in the poem. Both play their part but are described very little. Wealthow is often only called the "gold-ringed queen" and only exists to play "a noble woman who knew what was right" (Raffel, 31). Despite her noble status, Wealthow holds her tongue and is only mentioned when she serves Beowulf and his soldiers mead from a jeweled cup. Grendel's mother, on the other hand, plays a slightly bigger role, but only as an evil idenity. Her name is never revealed and she is only known as Grendel's mother, signifying that the male defines the female. Additionally, Grendel's mother is the only female character that poses a threat to Beowulf and his men. Unfortunately, she is portrayed as a "mighty water witch", insinuating that any woman who defied an man was evil and wicked (Raffel, 41). These two female characters demonstrate the Anglo-Saxon ideas that women should be figures rather than hold any real power. Notes how women have become stronger forces in the world, yet are still held back by men. In the movie, Grendel's mother is shown to be little more than a sex object in the eyes of men, which actual allows her to hold power over them. She is able to seduce Hrothgar and Beowulf, creating sons for her evil to live on through. These monsters eventually attack the men as the repercussions of the "sins of the......

The Journey of an Lpn

...Health Care Interview The person I chose for my interview is Marlene Jones-Wallace. She is 42 years old and she is a LPN or in other words a Licensed Practical Nurse. Marlene has been a LPN for 7 years at Montefiore Medical Center. She works within the Emergency field. I have gained information about what is takes to become a LPN, What do they do? And other information I felt that we should know. A licensed practical nurse or LPN works under the direction of registered nurses and doctors. They care for patients who are sick, injured, recovering or disabled. A licensed practical nurse is also known as a licensed vocational nurse or LVN. The job involves a variety of daily tasks ranging from dressing wounds to feeding infants. On the job, Licensed Practical and Licensed Vocational Nurses perform a variety of functions. These functions can be maintaining records of patients' histories, provide dressing or bathing assistance, update doctors and registered nurses on a patient's status, measure vital signs, assist doctors and registered nurses with tests and procedures, caring for and feeding infants, assemble and or use and clean certain medical equipment, start IV drips or give medication, and monitor medication and a patient's response. Most LPNs are trained to work in all aspects of health care, but there are some who specialize in certain areas. LPN’s or LVN’s can be found in all kinds of medical settings like hospitals, clinics, physicians' offices, nursing homes and even......

...accounting issues, where relevant. You should also evaluate the financial condition and performance of each company. You may wish to include projected financial statements and a valuation based on those projections. However, finance covers valuation in far more detail in finance, so valuation is not the crucial part of this write-up.

That will include five minutes for setup, twenty minutes for a presentation, and five minutes for questions. 4. Final Exam. The exam will consist of five or six questions taken from footnotes, financial statements, or articles. The exam may include any topic covered in this course.

Lpn Career

...the sick isn't always a tolerable sight. The skills of an LPN goes far beyond education. A nurse must be compassionate, observant, firm but fair, and most of all willing to the support for the patient. These skill are innate, they cannot be taught but developed from within. While LPNs should possess a compassionate nature, they sometimes need to be thick-skinned when it comes to occasional unkind treatment from others. ("Licensed Practical Nurses."Ferguson's Career Guidance Center) A care provider whitout a heart is a poor care provider. As an LPN you are responsible for makings sure that the patient receives the proper care that is laid out by the Physician.    Paragraph 3-- To become an LPN, you must first complete an approved practical nursing program. Many nursing students are opting for a four-year degree because of the accompanying increase in job status and opportunities. LPN programs are generally offered through two-year colleges and vocational and technical schools. Some programs are offered in high schools.  Then upon completion of the program the student must take the examination required for licensing known at the State Boards Examination for Nursing. . ("Licensed Practical Nurses."Ferguson's Career Guidance Center) I'm am well on my way to achieving my goal because I have made the first steps necessary to the process to becoming a LPN. This career path is very beneficial in my mission in life. Successful LPNs must have physical strength, flexibility and......

...attempt to dictate my response. In these kinds of situations, children very clearly understand that history matters. * When you go into a doctor’s office for the first time, you invariably have to fill out an information sheet that asks about your medical history. Some of these forms are very detailed, asking questions that require information from rarely accessed memory banks. Why does a doctor ask these questions? The doctor is trying to construct an accurate picture of your state of health. Your health is heavily influenced by the past. Your heredity, past behaviors, past experiences are all important determinants and clues to your present condition. Whenever you return to the doctor, he or she pulls out a file which contains all the notes from past visits. This file is a history of your health. Doctors understand very clearly that the past matters. * Some of you might be thinking that these examples are not very compelling because they both deal with the very recent past—they are not what we think of when we think of history. Let me give one final example that is more to the point. In 1917 the Communists took control of Russia. They began to exercise control over how the history of their country ought to be told. They depicted the tsar as oppressive and cruel. The leaders of the revolution, on the other hand, were portrayed in a very positive light. The Communist government insisted that these leaders, and in particular Lenin, understood more clearly than any one......
