This week we focused on the roles of health care personnel in patient care. I was hoping to gain a better understanding of the resources available to me to help provide the best care possible for my patients. This week I able to learn about the different resources available in patient care. Applying the information in case studies, critical thinking scenarios, and discussions helped prepare for situations that might occur while I’m working. This week I felt like I was also able to become more familiar with diabetes education. I am not an expert in diabetes, let alone in another language, so knowing that people like diabetes educators and translators are available help makes my role as a nurse less overwhelming. Diabetes is a complex condition and requires a great deal of education.
While I’m working as a nurse in the future, I will be sure to be aware of my resources and of people that can help me in difficult situations.
