CNA1000034457 08/21/2012 - 05/21/2016 Status - Active:Good Standing Heart Savers ASHI CPR Pro/BLS May 02, 2014 - May 2016 Heart Savers CPR/AED/First Aid Training May 02 2014 - May 2016 I am 21 years old, have my High School Diploma & all prerequisites completed for NAU Nursing Program. I begin the NAU Nursing Program Summer of 2016 to achieve my bachelors of science in nursing. I have acute care hospital experience in a telemetry unit (Progressive Care Unit) where heart rhythms are closely monitored, vital signs are consistently acquired through special equipment, and traditional nursing care is given through administration of medication and help with activities of daily living. On a telemetry unit floor, I usually have between 10-15 patients at a time, however that number often increases to 20 patients during night shift. I have also been assigned all 40 patients a few times due inadequate staffing. Workload was reduced to 20 after help was found. I can easily transfer between units as needed, can work with people I have not met before and will not effect the amount of teamwork and communication. I have mainly worked in the Progressive Care Unit, however I have been floated to a variety of units such as the emergency room, inpatient psychiatric unit, psychiatric unit of the emergency room, other PCU floors, ICU, I have done some transporting work for a few hours, and I have great experience with 1:1 observation/companionship. I also have experience in a skilled nursing facility/nursing home for almost 2 years. I believe teamwork is ABSOLUTELY necessary because it can be the factor between life and death in a healthcare setting, especially in an acute care facility such as a hospital. Without proper communication between nurses, nurses aids, doctors, respiratory techs, etc, a patient will not get the proper care and customer service that they require. For example, If I do not tell a nurse immediately that there is a vital sign out of the ordinary, the patient will not get the proper medication in order to stabilize the vital sign and they may have a heart attack or stroke or whatever it may be. If I do not communicate that I need help transferring or adjusting a patient in bed, I may hurt myself and render myself useless if I injure my back. Teamwork is the most important aspect to working in a healthcare setting and needs to be taken seriously. I am a big team player.
