Intelligent, empathetic graduate nurse seeks registered nurse caregiver position. Recognized for exceptional patient care by staff and clients in the units of geriatric, psychiatric, med-surgical, and infusion unit. Able to bring innovation in the aptitudes of patient care, safety, and promotion in well-being! Nursing has always been a profession that I wanted to pursue. I've always been interested in the nursing field ever since I could grasp the concept of healthcare. When I was a child I idolized the work ethics of my parents. My mother was a nurse and her caring and knowledgeable charisma were qual ities that I wanted to see in myself. My father was a headmaster of a school for children with learning disabilities which generated my interest in mental health. I admired the strong experience my parents had in both physical and mental health. From seeing such perseverance from my parents to help mankind, I became attracted to medical books at an early age and thought how wonderful it was for people to want to help one another. Reading about the treatments and care nurses provide to others was something I desired to contribute to when I became an adult. In my college career I have received recognition and scholarships for going above and beyond in professional volunteering organizations and schoolwork. I have been thoroughly dedicated to my studies and have graduated with a 3.94 GPA. I was also appointed Vice-President of the Student Nurses Association (SNA) of Yavapai College. This leadership opportunity in the SNA has made me comfortable with a management role when future opportunities arise. I still maintain a 4.0 GPA in my current scholastic career at the University of Texas at Arlington. I am further committed to the holistic care of patients. I'll uphold the goals and values of the clients I provide for while pursuing innovative ideas to promote the best quality of life that can be attained. ... more
