Personal statement

My dream to do adult nursing was when I suffered from pneumonia
as a child. Growing up in Kenya due to living conditions I got pneumonia. I loved
how caring the nurses where and they never failed to keep a smile on my face
every morning. This then aspired me to be a nurse. In addition I also volunteered
in a care home at the age of 16. I wasn’t able to do personal care home but I would
sit with the residents during tea time and I enjoyed having a chat and helping
the service providers as much as I could.

Am currently studying level 3 health and social care at
Stockport College. During this course I’ve been able to enjoy all my units and I
have gained a lot of knowledge from my tutors and peers. One of my favourite
units has been anatomy and physiology which I got a distinction. (Get
information of what I’ve learnt).  I have
also learnt a lot from unit 12 public health. This unit has increased my
knowledge on key points of public health strategies and how the National Health
Service (NHS) was led and put into effect in 1948 by Aneurin Bevan who was the
labour health minister. Working with adults, it’s important to know different types
of dementia which could affect people from any age. This unit has taught me
different roles and responsibilities of health care providers in improving the
health and quality for people with dementia. This unit also outlines different
types of dementia and common signs and symptoms. Lastly, working in a health
care environment it’s important that health and safety measures are taken. For
example carrying out risks assessments and finding a way to minimise them for
the service users.

During my course, I’ve done 200 hours of placement in a care
home. I’ve learnt about the importance of multi-agency working and good
communication skills. For example writing and noting down each activity the
service users do. This has improved my communication effectively and my
interpersonal interactions. For instance, when talking to service users it’s important
to talk in a quiet place since noise can affect an individual’s comfort and
cause annoyance. It can also affect the concentration of the communication

My hobbies are dancing, going to different concerts,
spending time with my family and friends and reading. When I visit Kenya I also
love spending time in a children’s orphanage called Tumaini children’s home in
Mombasa and we try to provide basic necessities. I do enjoy sports and going to
the gym which helps improve my fitness abilities.

I came from Kenya to the UK in 2015 January. It was quite
hard travelling all the way from a different continent and having to start all
over only with only a few months left to do my GCSE’S.

I do believe that adult nursing is the right career path
choice since I’ve been able to work in a health care environment and learnt
from professional health workers what is needed and demanded from you working
as a nurse. Nursing might be challenging but its important to stay calm and
comforting to all patients regardless of the situation since they trust you and
look up to you for reassurance. I am confident I can overcome these challenges
since I believe I entail the academic ability and good understanding of professional
care values to be an adult nurse.
