What Motivates Me in my Practice?
I am a migrant nurse practitioner from Cuba and derive utmost motivation from the results of my work. Away from my home, I have come face to face with dire illnesses in the places I have served. Some nursing cases I have handled have even required me to be utmost careful. This is because the rate of transmission of the diseases from the patient to the caregivers is high. The results of my work have always proved to be quite pleasing and worthwhile. From contagious illness to emergency cases such as calamities and road accidents, helping the victims have another second chance in life is very motivating. Despite all the challenges in this job and the high risks, I have always looked forward to saving a life.
What Do I Do Best in Practice?
I am most gifted in primary care. I am the coordinator of other professionals in the medical field, and therefore, I am mostly in principal and first contact with medical incidents, in both continuing patients and first patients. There are several medical practices I have to adhere to as a primary caregiver. I have to conduct a thorough medical assessment for first patients before recommending systematic prescription to other specialists. Iliffe (2013) corroborates this and notes that a primary caregiver must have succinct knowledge of the case at hand. Coming into contact with serious cases requires utmost care. For example, accident victims coming to the hospital require thorough examination before they are forwarded to relevant medical specialists. Some emergency cases may be contagious, hence need to be of utmost care with my assessment medical practice.
Where Do I Get the Most Satisfaction in My Practice?
My most satisfaction in my medical practice is when the patient under my care gets cured. It not only gives inner motivation to handle more cases but gives utmost heart and mind satisfaction of the quality of my capabilities in my field. As a professional, I thrive towards giving my most. As a primary caregiver, I often get into contact with serious cases. Putting all my learning and practice into curing serious cases is a passion, and therefore, when the results are positive is very satisfying. As a migrant medical practitioner, I handle all sorts of problems, and in most of the areas I have served as a foreign medical officer, the patients may not be in good positions to finance high-level medical facilities and institutions. In such cases, the focus is not on the financial gains, but on getting the patients to their original health positions.
What Am I Most Proud About My Practice?
I am most proud of my capability to provide the best care as per my profession to the patients. As a Cuban offering my nursing practice in a foreign country, I focus on understanding all the dynamics of illnesses in the handle. This is the best way in getting all the details about the illnesses with which I come into contact. When the results are positive, I feel proud about the general practice I give. While gratitude from the patients and their dependent is satisfying, my first focus is on getting the patients to his or their original health status. High pride about my practice is when patients are in very dire need, or when patients’ survival chances are near zero and I make the patients get back to their normal health status.
How Might I Attract a Consumer or Organization to Pay my Skills?
Mitchell (2009) writes that the best way to get the best from a nursing profession is to produce high satisfaction levels for the medical practitioners and the consumers of the medical practice. Satisfied customers will be highly motivated to pay for advanced services, and various organizations under recommendation from individual customers will be attracted to ask for medical services. Consumer awareness is also critical to attracting more to the medical practice. Satisfied customers and organizations with awareness are most rewarding. They will ask for the services in future and pay satisfactory for the services offered.
