The Nursing Career

My experience and skills will be valuable for me to take the Nurse Practitioner position. I understand that my skills and experience such as coordination of nursing services; provision of education/ information to the patient/ family concerning their diagnosis or conditions; symptom prevention/ management and following up on patient progress will be helpful to the new role. I have also managed chronic diseases and their associated symptoms. I am capable of planning, organizing and coordination of patient appointment services. I can work in the assessment, planning, intervention and the evaluation of the patient care services.

The other personal and professional qualities that I can offer are as follows. I can actually optimize the use of available resource designed for maximum patient gain or benefit. I don’t comprise on the wastage of resources, they are limited and hence should be used wisely and optimally. Earlier, I had worked as an advocacy officer to oversee that patients’ rights were being obeyed and their benefits offered in its entirety.

I am competent in organizing, planning and provision of continuity of care services in accordance to existing laws and guidelines. My scope of experience is not only limited to inpatient care, but I can also handle outpatients and home care services to a satisfactory degree of success. Hospice patients normally require specialized services. I have worked with them, largely by managing their pain, educating their caregivers, offering palliative services and wound management services.

I have also interacted and provided service and care to surgical patients. This involved the provision of urgent services such as blood transfusion, pain management, wound management and changing treatment intervention plans when deemed necessary. In this time was responsible for charting medical records, providing patient updates to their family members and the physicians in charge.

Nurse Practitioners are expected to offer safe, quality and effective healthcare services. These are the three basic skills I have to master effectively. I am expected to achieve patients’ satisfaction and positive feedback outcomes after the provision of healthcare services.  This will be a hard endeavor to attain as patient satisfaction due to the fact that its success depends on a lot of factors.  But I have to do my best to the best of my knowledge, skills, experience and in accordance to the existing professional codes of conduct.  I have to be assessing myself always based on the outcomes, safety, quality, and on the effectiveness of care. Training needs and recommendations will be based on the same (Stanik-Hutt, Newhouse, White, Johantgen, Bass, Zangaro, Wilson, Fountain, Steinwachs, Heindel & Weiner, 2013).

The Lewis University (2015) provides an environment for a busy and complex nursing environment. It also provides for a training based on the current nursing challenges in accordance to current knowledge and evidence based studies. The training will also focus on the safety of healthcare service and current approved therapeutic intervention measures. The training in the university will also boost my career based o the quality of services I will offer; performance based on viable evidence; and to systematically address clinical patient issues (Lewis University, 2015),
