A CAREER
IN CARE

Musings from nurses at different stages of their working life

护士经常是特殊医疗护理的接受方.


有时,这就是他们帮助别人度过困难时期的动力.

But the global pandemic has not made their jobs easy.


We spoke to student nurses, 职业生涯中期的护士和护理教育者现在被认为是他们领域的“老兵” . . . why did you choose nursing, and why do you stay?

现在护理真的很困难,COVID就像一辆卡车一样袭击了btc365世界杯.  

We’re all figuring out the best way to get through it.  The challenges are always there, so I need to return always to my core values – connection, 同情心和好奇心——记住它们是如何支撑我的工作的.  

我希望btc365世界杯都能反思是什么赋予了btc365世界杯生活的意义和目标,并在btc365世界杯的工作中找到表达这些意义和目标的方式.

As a nurse academic, I get to have an impact on students’ learning and, hopefully, 对他们将来成为什么样的护士产生了积极的影响——我喜欢看到我教过的学生在毕业典礼上走过讲台. 

Whether it’s a quiet day or a chaotic one, whether assisting a calm or distressed person, 有一些有意义的事情正在发生,我可以做出贡献——这使一切都值得. For me, I found that in palliative care.

护理从根本上讲就是与人建立联系,这也是我在英国参加会议的原因, Ireland, Switzerland, Austria, India, Singapore, New Zealand and Canada.  

I hope to retire in my early to mid-60s, but I have no intention of stepping away from nursing altogether.

At the height of the pandemic, 我被派遣到一个临时疫苗接种诊所,在那里,btc365世界杯六人团队在5小时内安全接种了180多种疫苗.  

那是一种紧张但又很棒的经历,因为护士们每天都这样操作,而且有条不紊, creative, collaborative, and practical.  

护士能迅速接受这种情况,并把注意力集中在自己能控制的事情上, 专业精神和团队精神激励他们迎接和克服挑战.  

我选择学习护理是为了给家人和其他人提供更好的照顾. 我也受到了护士们的鼓舞,她们为一个亲密的家庭成员提供了特别的护理,他在一年内住院六次.  

我在btc365世界杯获得的知识和经验让我有信心在未来的某一天继续我的工作. 

我相信终身学习的态度和领导才能对我的职业生涯至关重要.

我四处奔波,为新生儿和儿科病人提供流动重症监护. 

btc365世界杯经常在家庭生活中最糟糕的一天被迫进入他们的生活. 

I feel so privileged each day that I can go to work, jump on a plane, 直升飞机或救护车,前往新南威尔士州各地支持他们.

I feel lit up every day by helping all those around me, whether it’s a family or the local medical staff.  

自大流行以来,护士和许多医学界人士都在苦苦挣扎. 幸运的是,我看到了大流行的另一面. I love my career, now more than ever. 

I am glad I became a nurse. Every day I am faced with challenges, obstacles and scenarios which often push me to the limits, but I persevere to help someone in their time of need. 

I’ve now started a Masters of Nursing in Clinical Education, to one day impart my knowledge and experiences to others. 

MELISSA PRUYS
Bachelor of Nursing, btc365世界杯 Fraser Coast

我的儿子是在一个紧急情况下出生的,那一周我得到的高度护理和关注足以让我最终获得护理学位. 

护士通常是无私的,通过理解病人的不适来度过困难时期, scared, 不确定的人需要一个专注的团队来实现最好的结果. 

This results in a camaraderie that not everyone can understand, but it helps nurses get through tough times together.

Every lesson in my nursing journey has been a stepping stone. I’m learning skills including communication techniques, groupwork, practical skills and theoretical knowledge.  

然后,btc365世界杯把所有这些付诸实践,在真实的工作场所“安置”——一个大开眼界的经验,充满了机会,帮助btc365世界杯决定未来可能采取的道路.  

尽管生活中有过一些波折,但我学习护理的愿望从未落空. I want to create a stable career path for myself and my family. 

KRISTINE MURPHY
btc365世界杯 Academic and Clinical Facilitator

护士曾经被认为是医生的“助手”,但这种看法现在早已不复存在. 

Career pathways have changed dramatically, with nurses becoming leaders in healthcare, CEOs, academics, educators and more. 

护士在病人护理计划的多学科团队中扮演着至关重要的角色.

在我成为一名教育者之前,我有幸在世界知名的癌症诊所工作,并倡导病人的安全. 

今天,在塑造btc365世界杯未来护士的过程中发挥作用,看着他们取得成功,我感到非常高兴, as I near the 40th anniversary of my own graduation. Many of my cohort are still close friends. 

护士有选择和机会,所以我鼓励他们通过结合多个兼职角色来找到自己的“快乐之地”,保持工作的趣味性. There are no rules anymore.  

But when it comes to caring for patients, 这就是驱使我每天尽可能成为最好的护士的根本原因——帮助人们度过他们害怕和脆弱的艰难时刻.  

我为护士在需要退一步照顾自己时意识到这一点的必要性喝彩. 自我护理是许多护士仍然觉得困难的事情,因为他们如此专注于给予他人.

But despite this, I would never NOT be a nurse. It is who I am to the core.   

ALI MOLONEY
Intensive Care Nurse, btc365世界杯 higher-degree student

我见过一些病人从“不可能”的情况中恢复过来,告诉我他们在重症监护时还记得我的声音.

There have been so many bittersweet moments in my career, 有些人是如此可笑的快乐,让我热泪盈眶. 

一开始是因为我想帮助别人,因为我妈妈是聋子.

She was treated very differently when I was young. 我意识到,作为一名护士,我可以通过全面治疗每个病人来改变现状.   

我发现在紧急情况下保持冷静,这种方法成为每一个反应和耐心评估和重新评估的一部分. 即使病人很沮丧、生气或崩溃,我记得那不是针对我的. 我需要对他们表示同情、支持和关心,但不是针对他们. 

We take care of people at their very best, and at their very worst.  We have to problem-solve and consider the bigger picture. How you process and reflect is what gets you through. 

We get to help people and their families recover and heal, understand their conditions, and respect their wishes – and that’s what lights me up.  

A career in Nursing is at the heart of many inspiring stories.
