Reflect upon and describe the most important thing you have learned about yourself in the context of your  hands­on healthcare experience. I’ve never considered myself as an emotional person, maybe kind, but I was never a crier. My time in the  St. Peters ER has shown me I have great empathy for others. Not just children or mothers, but any patient  who is suffering. Some people find it difficult to have pity for those who are dirty and bring trouble upon  themselves, e.g. addicts, patient who refuse to take medications or manage diet. But all I have learned to  see is a person who is usually alone and who is not used to receiving help or kindness. I’ve learned I have a passion to help these people. Clean them up, offer them as much dignity as I can, and always let them know they are not inconveniencing me, at least that is what I hear from most patients, they are not a burden they  are another human being that deserves all the quality medical care and kindness I can give.    Honestly, in the last three years I have worked at Providence I have grown more as a person and discovered more of my capabilities and passion than in any other point of my life. I came as a tech knowing I wanted  to be a nurse, but was not wholly sure of my ability to become one. Now I can say with complete certainty  that I would not only make a good nurse I will be a great nurse. I have a tenacious desire to continue  learning all I can about medicine and the art of healing the mind and body. This is daily acknowledged by  the nurses and doctors I work with. Many have come to trust my ability to diagnosis symptoms and my  ability to read both the physical and mental state of a patient. Further more I am trained to not only look at  the disease of the patient, but their condition as a whole. Having a dry mouth or chapped lips seems small  in comparison as to why the patient is in the ER, but I have seen how the little things can effect the mental  state of a patient and thus hinder the healing process. When I am a nurse I will not consider the my  responsiblities as a tech not longer applying to me. I worked around many nurses of all skill levels and I  know from experience the truly exceptional nurses are just as willing to change a brief or hand feed a  paralyzed patient as I am. Working as a tech I get to see both the glorious and not so glorious side being a  nurse. I am grateful for this time because not only has it shown me I have the skills and ambition to enter  into nursing, but I know it will be more than a job to me. Caring for other is a life long passion.     Explain how the setting, duration of experience, skills learned and applied, and your interactions with  health professionals and patients have helped you identify your strengths and weaknesses as a future nurse. During my time at providence I have been able to work with both doctors and nurses with sometimes over  20 years of experience. They have challenge me as a person and medically. I am greatful to have an open  relationship with them in that I am able to seek advice on multiple subjects and they are happy to teach.  Strengths: able to read people and notice if patient is actually sick, will help in any situation and any  person, have empathy for anyone suffering no matter attitude, er enjoy working in team, flexible, able to  switch roles quickly if someone is already filling it, able to calm agitated patients. Weaknesses: prone to  self doubt, will take on too much at one time,       How will you apply what you have learned about yourself to your practice as a nurse?    Do you believe that your level of cultural awareness will influence the way you deliver care as a nurse?  Give two examples from your past healthcare experience illustrating how your level of cultural awareness  impacted your work with people who are different from yourself. Working as a nanny for both a muslin and Hindu family cleaning apartments for disabled and low­income  tenants.    A typical quarter in the ABSN program consists of 18­20 credits and requires approximately 70 hours per week to succeed. You are expected to make a full­time commitment for 15 months and, during that time,  you must be available early mornings, daytime, evenings, and weekends for clinical, laboratory, or  classroom instruction. Explain:  Why you have chosen this type of program Though this program will stretch me mentally and physically my three years I have worked as a tech has  not only confimed my decision, but made me eager to start my nursing career. In the ER I tend to thrive  under pressure and preform amply I believe this program will be similar.  How you have prepared yourself to meet these program requirements I have worked in multiple situations, multiple experience, worked hard in my classes to exceed standers,  constantly shadowing nurses to learn about medication procedures. Help nurses by charting.    Other ways you are prepared for the ABSN program
