What Is the Most Defining Moment
What Is the Most Defining Moment That Impacted Your Decision to Become a Nurse What is the most defining moment that impacted your decision to become a nurse? As many of my peers might agree the decision process to pursue a nursing education was more of a Journey than one bite spark of a single moment in time. Looking reflectively through this magnifying glass of time, I see many points of lights that lent clarity too my decision cutting’s stone moment.
I use these words with purpose in hat I personally experience a redefining process most easily related to a tool used to sharpen dull blades. The fire that is yield during the process creates a magnificent precise piercing instrument, from that which was once too easily discharged. I have struggle with low self-esteem issue for the most of my 44 years of life. I share this not for any plea of attention but as simple explanation to my lack of desire to attend a very demanding educational process that will require me to be very sure of my actions and judgment calls.
Up-until this period in my life, it was easy to follow than to learn to take charge. The role seems ill fitted for me, funny how life changes us. I have never before consider myself lacking In understanding or ability, I have always enjoyed a great sense of pride In the level of care I provide for my patients and the love and income I provided for my children. I have worked in healthcare since 1989 in one position or another as an aide. I found I could make okay income with overtime paid and could work the hours I desired by being Just a hard worker.
This allowed me to raise my small children with my mother’s help. Being her only child my mother was well okay with this as long as I did all that I could to pull my weight as the saying 1 OFF at home, with service form home healthcare nurses and doctors. The time scattering moment was when I was faced with my lack of knowledge of my mother disease process fuel maybe by guilt or Just simply inability to effect any change for her. She was my strength in so many ways. Here in that moment I stood lacking.
I am not owlish enough to believe my actions now can effect a change for how I view that life event; however my security blanket has been pulled off forever. I without question understand healthcare better than I know any other work experience and more over I truly have always enjoyed providing good and competent care for others. It’s Just now I need to continue with a better knowledge base, so I can be really effective. I understand that there is only so much that truly can be done but I prefer to know that my actions are correct as they can be.
Acts of kindness are what easy a person in times of major health issues, however acts of kindness are Just that. As a CAN I am lacking the ability make any real effect for my patients dealing with different disease processes and I am in full understanding of my current scope of practice. I really now need and want more than acts of kindness for myself as well as my future patients. I have worked healthcare for so long it become a part of my life, more like extend family I will enjoy the ability to provide better for all parts of my family.
