As a future LPN, describe how you want to contribute to nursing

As a licensed practicing nurse, I will always ensure that the voice of the patients are heard since I will be the one whom they will explain their health problems. Since I will always do assessments, I can advise the doctors and other practitioners on the changes that practice on the patients through administration of drugs to help foster healthcare in the hospitals.

Describe what areas of nursing practice you would like to work in and why?

From my personal assessment, I realize that Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) is a perfect fit for me. The reason as to why I choose this point is because I love being of help to saving a childs life. I would like to be part of those who help a child from the point where their life is facing a difficulty due to a disease or a condition, towards recovery and later being discharged. I want to help save the lives of children since the children are the people who will bring change in the next generation.

Secondly, I want to make sure I attain a management role in the hospital I work in. I want to be a supervisor and be able to dispense my skills to the patients by training my juniors on the handling of patients. I will help the management reach the nurses effectively through me.

What obstacles do you need to overcome to be able to attain your goals as a nurse?

The biggest obstacle in my career as a registered nurse working in NICU is balancing my time to the family and the job. In this job, I will need to spend most of the time helping the patients. This job is very demanding and needs a lot of time. On the other hand, my family, especially my two kids, will need my time. They will want to see me as their parent and help them in school work. I will ensure that I balance time for both of them efficiently and that the obstacle does not negatively affect my family and my career. Also, the difficulty in paying school fees for my kids and other bills forms another obstacle. I will work hard and ensure this also, does not affect my career negatively.
