Please allow me to introduce myself. My name is Tiffany. I am a working professional who will soon be taking a leap of faith and embarking on a new journey.
I have always had the desire to help the sick, elderly, and disabled population. Through work, I developed a great deal of patience when dealing with people. I acquired the ability to assess the needs of others, express empathy, and have compassion. Moreover, I am an advocate for these individuals. With each experience, I have been a servant to others.
My background includes, being a Certified Nursing Assistant, Disability Claims Specialist, FMLA (Leave of Absence) Coordinator, and a Service Representative. However, after years of gaining invaluable work experience, the thought of pursuing a nursing career has never left me. It was through these experiences that I have been able to dig deep and gain the confidence needed to start this journey. I will soon be starting nursing school.
With the Masters Entry Nursing program, I hope to achieve three things. First, to gain an in-depth understanding of the nursing curriculum as it relates in a clinical setting. Secondly, to develop more profoundly personally and professionally to be prepared for direct patient care. Thirdly, to acquire the knowledge, skill-sets, and networks to be successful within the healthcare field.
While my professional goal is to utilize the MS in Nursing degree to become a critical care nurse. My interests transpired from living on the south side of Chicago. It was during these years that I became aware of the needs for the people in my community. I plan to use my practical and analytical skills to provide the best nursing care possible.
Furthermore, I plan to maintain a progressive interest in alleviating health care issues in minority communities. My long-term goal is to continue my education for Nurse Practitioner and be of service to those in undeserved areas. I strongly believe that my background, educational training, and career pursuits will allow me to impact the communities where I plan to live and work daily.
I created this blog not only to share my personal journey but also to inspire others. This blog will provide insight into the life of a student nurse at the masters level. I welcome you to follow along as I become Tiffany, MSN RN.
