Durning my journey to become a Professional Registered Nurse learned a great deal of information and skills. My Journey was not easy. I had struggles, failures, victories and short comings. I have learned the power in the use of study groups and having a classmate help you along the way. In the associate program I developed a strong study group in my clinic section and lecture section. This helped me to better understand the content. I never was a student that can read fast, I have to read slowly to understand the content and apply what I learned. Having a study group or partner helped me to exercise what I learned. The BSN program is different from the associate degree program because now we have to think on a higher level and the aim for the best possible outcomes. During the journey I have learned why is it is important to know the needs and resources of the community you serve to provider quality care and educate them on preventative care. I learned that nursing care goes far beyond the hospital rooms, clinics, nursing homes and home care. Nurses have the ability to be apart changing systems, health policies and laws for the benefit of the greater population and underserved population. I have learned how valuable nurses are in the health care system, we are know to be the most trusted profession by the public. That encourages me to be the best nurse I can be and love my job. Too often nurses feel unappreciated by the company, superiors and colleagues they work with. I learned  about the culture in the work place and how important it is to have joy in the workplace. Joy in the work place increases team building and decrease burnout. I learned how to delegate tasks to be available to take care of the tasks that only the nurse can perform with skill at a professional level. Without delegation and team work a nurse experience burnout. I learned about workplace violence, bullying and unconscious bias. I learned what it takes to be a nursing leader and the different types of styles. I hope to follow the path of a transformational leader, mentoring, inspiring action, positivity, and safe practice.
