Need Help

  1. Hello all. I am a current nursing student in clinicals and have been given as assignment that is due 11/5/07. The assignment is to interview an LPN, RN, and a Advanced Practive Nurse. I am desperately needing help. If you would be willing to answer a few brief questions I would be extremely grateful. The questions are as follows:

    1. Describe the number of years / type of educational experience you have.

    2. Describe the different roles in which you have worked in the health care field.

    3. Explain how professionalism is incorporated in your role as a nurse.

    4. What advice would you give to a person thinking of beginning a career in the nursing profession?

    5. What advice would you consider most important to a nursing student as they work towards the completion of their degree?

    If you can help me, please e-mail the answers to the above questions, your name and whether you are an LPN, RN, or Advance Practice Nurse. Thank you in advance.

    i have been an rn for 16 years as an adn. in august of this year i received my bsn.
    2. describe the different roles in which you have worked in the health care field.

    i have primarily worked in staff nurse positions and charge nurse positions. i have precepted both new graduates and student nurses.

    3. explain how professionalism is incorporated in your role as a nurse.
    ugh, i hate this question. i'm a professional and i act like one. i know that's not a good answer, but tell your instructors i think it's a silly question.

    4. what advice would you give to a person thinking of beginning a career in the nursing profession? keep a very open non-judgemental mind. allow yourself plenty of time to grow and to learn. don't judge the entire profession on a few nurses you meet.

    5. what advice would you consider most important to a nursing student as they work towards the completion of their degree?

    nurses do not eat their young.
