The first assessment test was an analysis on “how creative I am”, I socred a positive 11, scores range from negative 12 and +18, the higher your score the more you display characteristics associated with a creative personality. I somewhat agree with this because I do believe in certain situations I can be creative although I wouldn’t consider myself as being the most creative, The second assessment was “what motivates me” I had a score of 16 on growth needs, 12 relatedness and 13 on existence needs, To be honest I really didn’t understand the end results of this assessment. My third self assessment was “what’ s my attitude toward achievement,” where my favor of seeing successful people fall was 24 and 47 for seeing successful people rewarded. Basically what it says is that I think highly of people who become successful and believe they deserve all the benefits that come along with success. This is true about me because I am all for success and I feel like if I work really hard at it that I deserve the outcome. I guess the 24 points of my favor in them falling come from the question I answered no to them being publicly glorified. Just because you are successful doesn’t mean you deserve to be put on a pedestal above anyone else I also took an assessment on my “ethic value”. Where I averaged out with most people, and on the “what time of the day I am the most productive,” I scored a 37 meaning I am intermediate when I have something not so important to do I am an evening person but as far as working I rather get it out the way early so I can have the evening with my family because in the morning my children are in school so its best that we are all home together, on the “am I experiencing work family conflict,” I scored 24 meaning work doesn’t completely make my family life miserable but it has its affects on it, and a few minor changes can help out to calm…...

...20 December 2011 Be Yourself Every morning at 5:00 a.m. my alarm rang. I had gotten accustomed to waking up to the sound of pots being gathered, plates and cups being assembled and sometimes shattering glass. That was a typical early morning. My mother was getting ready to open the restaurant as she did every morning for the early birds. Her restaurant was an annexation to our house. While my siblings were still asleep, I would crawl out of bed and head to the kitchen to give her a hand. Being in the kitchen to help cook was the highlight of my day. Parents in general inculcate to their children at an early age, the differences between genders. Before a child is born, his or her parents have in most cases chosen the color of clothing based on his or her gender. Society has predetermined that the color blue represents the male sex and the color pink the female. White and yellow are known to be unisex colors. The same gender categorization extends when it comes to selecting toys for children. Trucks and cars are known to be for boys whereas Barbie dolls are known to be for girls (Zhumkhawala). Children are not only influenced by their parents’ behavior in reference to gender, but also by their social environment. Individuals who are raised among brothers and sisters can observe the ways that their parents would try to make a clear distinction of gender identities between them. The authors of Parenting and the child’s world state that parents play an important role in......

Finding Yourself

...Ana Westerman 27 February 2013 Finding Yourself I walked in the door Wednesday, February 15, 2012 with a huge smile on my face. My life was going just great. I had great friends, a serious boyfriend, and I was just doing my thing. As I walked into my room my dad followed me and shut the door. I instantly knew something was wrong. My dad started to talk and I wasn't paying attention because life was finally starting to be great. Thirty seconds later it finally hit me what was being said. "Your grandpa died." My grandpa has been struggling with diabetes, cancer, broken bones, blood transfusions and dialysis. He has had on step in death's door for the past twelve years. "He may be the solider, but he's not the only one serving" My family was behind him 100%. Not only my family, but everyone who knew him admired and loved him. He may be fighting, but he wasn't fighting alone. The four years when my grandpa didn't have heath problems- I don't remember. When I really started to know him, he had severe health problems, but you would've never known. I admire how he wouldn't let this take over his life-he wouldn't let them win. In February of 2012, my family and I would go up to Wisconsin, where he lived, multiple times and stay for a long period because he supposedly wasn't going to make it. I've heard that phrase for the past five years, and he's made it- so why would this be any different? We all knew he wasn't going to leave with out putting up a fight. He's been......

Developing Yourself

...When making a decision, logically analyze the pros and cons of your options. Make trade-offs between taking a personal, immediate approach to matters and being more objective and efficient in what you do. Think about what might be happening in 3-5 years and make a long-range plan. Be willing to revisit and change your plan. Challenge yourself to look for new ways of doing familiar tasks. Developmental Tips for the Logical Assimilator (ISTJ) Although you prefer to reflect carefully before acting, at times try taking a calculated risk and “jump in”. This can help you capitalize on unfamiliar or unexpected opportunities. When completing a task observe how people are reacting and interacting. Note how they connect with others and adjust your approach to match. When making a decision that affects people who are important to you, ask them to share their opinions and thoughts. Add their personal responses and preferences into your decision-making criteria. Think about what might be happening in 5 years and make a long-range plan. Be willing to revisit and change your plan. Challenge yourself to look for new ways of doing familiar tasks. Developmental Tips for the Compassionate Visionary (INFJ) Accept and appreciate the process of logical analysis.

Ways of Knowing

...Ways of Knowing Carper’s Ways of Knowing consists of four different patterns. The ways of knowing patterns are empirical, personal, ethical, and aesthetic. This theory help bring all four ways of knowing into patient care and into the nursing process. Empirical knowing is the scientific knowledge or science of nursing. A 69 year old man under my care in the Emergency Room presented with palpitation with slight chest discomfort. After initiating standing orders for chest pain, labs, IV access, oxygen by nasal cannula, and EKG, his potassium level came back highly elevated. I notified the doctor right away since he had not yet seen the results of the blood work. The proper medications were ordered to lower the patient’s potassium level. Having the empirical knowledge of blood levels and knowing the symptoms of the patient allowed me to treat this patient correct away. The personal knowledge pattern of knowing in the nursing is ‘concerned with the knowing, encountering and actualising of the concrete, individual self…standing in relation to another human being as a person.’(Carper, 1978, p. 18) I have been on the same side as a patient. One common complaint that is seen in the emergency room are the dreaded kidney stones. The last two ER jobs I had, I was unable to pass a kidney stone while at work. The pain had become so intense I had to get registered myself and become the patient. I had to be admitted due to the size of the stone and for pain control. It was an......

...Applying Ways of Knowing to a Clinical CaseGermaine ShannonUniversity of Central FloridaI was called to the emergency room by one of the nurses working that night. A patient was being discharged home by the emergency room physician, and the patient’s family had requested to speak to the nursing supervisor. When I arrived to the emergency room, the nurse that was taking care of the patient approached me. She pulled me aside, and voiced her concerns. The patient in bed three was sick with a respiratory infection. He had been given intravenous antibiotic and was now being discharged with a prescription of oral medication. According to the nurse, the patient was weak. The patient’s family was upset because the patient had missed two days of dialysis and they wanted him transferred to a hospital in Miami so he could have his dialysis done and also continue to be treated for his respiratory infection.Before approaching the family, I decided to speak to the physician so I could understand this case better and try to solve the situation in the best way possible. This was the second night that this physician had been working in the emergency room, and my first time meeting her. I told the physician that the family of the patient in bed three had requested to speak to me. The physician review of the situation was as follows: The patient had been in the emergency room earlier in the week and he had been treated for an upper respiratory infection.

Move Yourself

...Mood-Altering Medications”, but at the same time, admittedly, the thought of an exercise book and the implications thereof, might have meant that I would have to press myself to incorporate something else into my daily grind. However, the choice to start reading Medication Madness was not all that it was cracked up to be at first sight! Very soon into the book, I realized that I was bored to tears. The thought of continuing a book consisting of depressing stories about people committing suicide, or being extremely depressed, doing things out of their “ordinary” routine, such as “Harry”, bashing into the cop car, in an attempt to steal his gun, was not my idea of happy, holiday reading material, just saying. Next I picked up the other book, Move Yourself, and what I thought was going to be treacherous reading, turned into an awe-inspiring read! It was so good that I didn’t want to put it down. In spite of my previous notions of, well basically, having to get myself motivated to move, it inspired me to start thinking about getting really healthy, and wanting to move. It further inspired me to help inspire my mother to move……and, she did! I think overall, most people believe that in order to be super healthy, they have to adhere to a very strict, regimented, diet and exercise program, and well, let’s face it, most people are lazy, and do not want to partake in that! It is now my belief that any exercise is much better than no exercise, and I think that doctors as well as nurses......

Loving Yourself

...”How much we know and understand ourselves is critically important, but there is something that is even more essential to living a wholehearted life: loving ourselves.”- Brene Brown At the surface of this statement I hear that we must love ourselves for ourselves. Digging a little deeper into this quote and I also am feeling that we have to first love ourselves in order to love others. Living a wholehearted life means to access your whole ‘loving’ heart in everything you say or do; using your heart for genuine good. Loving ourselves for who we are and not waiting on who we want to become. Loving yourself allows you to show that love to others. Showing gratitude and joy as we go about our daily routines makes life worth living. If it is the connection that defines our purpose we should stay positively connected for life. For life…in order to live. As we need air to breathe we need connections to love. Again loving ourselves first and allowing that love to radiate through and around our being, making connections along the way. In the field as a youth worker this can be transferred by bringing your highest self to the experience when working with the youth. As a youth worker our job is to facilitate the growth and development of the youth. In doing so we have to make sure all our actions are intentional and within that intent filled with love. To truly make a difference in this field of youth work we must continue to bring our wholehearted living to the......

...Ways of Knowing Nursing is a very rewording profession which can blossom when incorporated into practice of Carper’s fundamental patterns of thinking. After reading Cotton and Roden article (December 2006 – January 2007), I realized great importance of understanding and implementing four concepts of thinking into daily nursing practice. According to Carper (1978:21-22) empirics, aesthetics, personal and ethical way of knowing in nursing are ‘necessary for achieving mastery in the discipline’. I believe that implementing those four patterns of knowing into daily nursing care is vital in order to provide best quality care for each patient. Nursing care should be implemented in flexible, thoughtful manner and should be carefully executed in unique situation with unique patients. Empirical Way of Knowing Empirical way of thinking is defined in article as a ‘factual, descriptive…exemplary, discursively formulated and publically verifiable which is ultimately aimed at developing abstract and theoretical explanation’ (Carper: 15). This way of thinking is executed using Evidence Based Practice. I have been a nurse for the past 10 years and I believe that empirical way of knowing is most familiar to me. For example, my facility is using Congestive Heart Failure protocol (policy created by facility based on clinical practice guidelines CPG) for patients admitted to hospital with either new onset of CHF or exacerbation of the disease. Each patient with CHF has comprehensive......

Love Yourself

...LOVE YOURSELF…EXPERIENCE LIFE! There was a time in life when I felt so low and defeated that all hope I might have had disappeared, I ended up feeling worthless and more like a failure especially when everyone around me seemed to have everything in their lives in order. Everywhere I turned, I felt like I was being mocked, like everyone was looking at me and saying just how much of a disappointment I was, and it got to me because I started loathing myself. I started feeling like I wasn’t enough, according to me everyone else was better than me in one way or the other. When standing in a group of people I would feel so inferior that at times I wished the ground would open up and swallow me live, hide me from the hell I was putting myself through and just make the pain go away thinking maybe if that were to happen, I wouldn’t feel so useless and unwanted in everything I did. It was at this point that I started building a wall around myself, created a shell that I crawled in just to hide when in front of the world. I remember walking into a class room or any gathering and going straight to the back of the room, anywhere where I wouldn’t be noticed easily, be invisible and wrap myself into my own little bubble where no one or anything could touch me or harm me in any way. I was honestly depressed because it was only me, I closed everyone else out because I thought I wasn’t good enough for them and that they were way too good for me for any sort of friendship to be formed......

Ways of Knowing

...Ways of Knowing D. Boone Ways of Knowing What are the four patterns of knowing fundamental to the professional nurse? Unlike many other professions, the nursing profession has many distinct and unique components. Nurses’ knowledge is acquired from many different sources and life experiences. Although hands on clinical skills are necessary, these skills are not usable alone. The ways of knowing is much more than the educational components of a college degree and licensure. Barbara Carper established four patterns of knowing which are needed in order to learn and apply nursing knowledge. The purpose of this paper is to discuss the four patterns of knowing, describe its relation to professional nursing and reflect upon these patterns in personal practice. Barbara Carper was a nurse pioneer who developed the four fundamental patterns of knowing in nursing. According to Carper (1978), “Understanding these patterns is essential for the teaching and learning of nursing” (P. 13). Carper identified four fundamental patterns of knowing which she classified as empirical, esthetic, personal and ethical. Carper (1978) states “The four patterns are distinguished according to logical type of meaning and designed as: (1) empirics, the science of nursing; (2) esthetics, the art of nursing; (3) the components of personal knowledge in nursing; and (4) ethics, the component of moral knowledge in nursing” (P. 14). Nursing knowledge goes beyond factual information. According......

Knowing the Audience

...Knowing Your Audience Paper and Communication Release To know your audience would be an extremely significant mark at any time a company was to communicate material to a group or organization. Knowing your audience proves to be even more significant when a company has to deal with the outcome resulting from a disaster. The disaster of the Chilean copper mine in South America is one example of where knowing your audience was a very significant issue. In a Chilean copper mine, a disastrous downfall in one of the shafts of the mine has left 33 miners trapped 310 meters (1017 feet) below the ground. The outcomes of the company and their reaction to the disaster would eventually define how the world, their audience, would see them. It turns out to be very imperative that the representatives of the company who issues updates and information to the public know their audience well. The audience the company would be reporting to would be made up of the news correspondence, the victim's families, and the media. Not only would the company representative have to keep the prestige and point of view of the mining company in one piece, they would have to issue precise and straightforward information that would not always be in the greatest interest of the company's standing. The collapse would not only have emotional impact on the 33 miners trapped underground, the family members of those miners would be distressed as well. The family members of those 33 men would have to wait in......

Knowing Your Audience

...Knowing Your Audience Communication is one tool that humans have advantage over any other species. It allows us to convey messages, instructions, information, and questions to each other. Whenever communication is used, the communicator must consider the audience that he or she will be addressing. The elements within the message must reflect on the audience to have a fully effective communication. The type of message and the mood of the audience will have major contributions to the message’s contents and how it will be expressed. When communicator hone on this vital information, it will help them communicate with their intended audience more efficiently. If you do not know much about your audience, it will be difficult to persuade them or maintain their attention. Knowing them can assist you to contour your message in a way that is most likely to achieve their approval. To obtain this approval, you will have to move your audience to change their pre-conceived attitudes and/or beliefs of the topic you are covering. In some cases, it is your discretion to emphasize their attitudes and beliefs. In the case of the Chilean Mining Accident, many factors have to be considered to ensure that your message will be received well with positive reaction. The obvious fact is the country and its economical status. Factors can include education, professional background, age, and gender. You must also regard their common interests and their relationship to one another. A good communicator......
