Can someone please read my essay and edit/comment/add anything they feel necessary. It's for my BSN application to the university of Illinois at chicago.
What experience have you had in the healthcare field?
I have had numerous experiences in the healthcare field. I have been working at a multi-specialty dentistry since 2010 until date as a dental assistant and sterilization technician. I have learned to work in a fast pace environment with General Dentists, Oral Surgeon, Periodontist, Orthodontist, and Pedodontist. Working at the Dentistry has immensely perfected my skills of communication with a diverse population as well as trained me to acquire exceptional decision-making skills in a high stress environment.
My other rewarding experiences have been volunteering at Family Centered Hospice and Marklund, a home for disabled children. Volunteering has given me the ability to understand and interact with people from various backgrounds, ages, gender, and cultures. I was also able build strong problem-solving and analytic skills to assess and care for each person as an individual.
Finally, I was fortunate enough to interview a Dietitian, Psychologist and a Registered Nurse. Additionally, I was able to shadow the Psychologist and Registered Nurse. I gained hands on familiarity of the daily duties of the three professionals. My modest experience has inspired and encouraged me to seek future education in the medical field.
I have a couple more if anyone is ever so kind to read via email =)
