Adult Nursing Personal Statement Example 15

As soon as I had finished my GCSE’s I had no particulare career pathway but I decided to get into health and social care.

I was always a patient and caring person but during my BTEC first diploma in health and social care course at MCAST in Malta I had further developed these skills and learned how to deal with children and the elderly.

I can deal and talk to an individual in a loving manner and be calm under stressful situations .Due to my patience I can also cater to the needs to multiple service users accordingly and treat each and everyone as a unique person.

After realising I had these skills and could further develop them I decided to carry on my course an am currently on my second year in the BTEC National Diploma in health and social care(care).

During my time in this couse I have worked with more people each with their own needs such as homeless people, drug addicts and people with disabilities.

However in one particulare work placement I had which was at an elderly home, an eldery had a small strokean I was unable to handle her as I was only specialised in social care.I called for the nurse and as soon as I saw how she handeled the situation I realized that simply taking a social approach on individuals is not enough, a medical approach is also needed in certain situations.

After this experience I started to also take an interest in biology which I already had some knowledge of in my previous course.

Now with my studies I able to detect if a person has a heart attack and what to do in these situations, if a service user has this experience I would still call the nurse or doctor however at least I know what my role in that situation is.

I would like to apply for this course in adult nursing because I want to change my role in such instances and want to be the one to help the person not only socially but medically as I believe that these two approaches have to go hand in hand when dealing with vulnerable people.

I think I am suitable for this course because I am patient,able to keep calm under stressful situations and know how to talk to people and cheer them up.

I am also creative as I had also studied art and this in turn had helped me make activities for clients according to their needs, one such instance was when I had organised an activity in which a group of clients who where on wheelchairs tossed a ball amongst themselves to work their upper body.
