As I begin this educational experience and search for purpose, I’m absolutely looking forward to reading and learning about my classmates current and past professional experiences. My greatest fears in this educational venture is writing papers and collaborating with groups. I have been out of school for ten years, so having to write a paper after so many years of not doing so is a bit nerve racking and overwhelming. As with the group projects, my fear is the differing schedules and not being able to meet deadlines. One way of overcoming these fears is being proactive and communicative. Staying ahead of assignments, not procrastinating until the last minute to contact other members of my respective group.
There was one occasion in my professional past where I had to go teach a home health patient about a Wound Vac application and dressing change. I had no clue as to how to even manage a Wound Vac. When you look at this device and the foams that come with it, it looks overwhelming. What worked to my advantage is that I knew 1 week in advanve that I had to go do this visit. None of my home health co-workers knew how to work a Wound Vac either. With the permission of my supervisor, I called the Wound Vac company and requested an inservice on the management of the machine and dressings. The company came the day after and taught all the nursing staff at the company about this device and the dressings involved with it. I was able to visit the patient and confidently apply the Wound Vac successfully my first time. It was just a matter of recognizing where I lacked knowledge and finding the right resource of education to deliver safe and quality care to my patient.
