Volunteerism

Loma Linda University has provided opportunities for community involvement through the Seventh Day Adventists outreach missions to provide healthcare services.  I am a current member of the Southern California Chapter of the "Los Medicos Voladores", providing services as a Registered Nurse.  Working with doctors to provide assessments, identify health risks and provide education.  As a Christian I attend church and my new journey with Loma Linda University and the Seventh Day Adventist, I look forward to many more community outreach opportunities. 

Student Evaluation

I believe the idea of demonstrating a framework for the nursing practice should guide nursing practice for the system. A hallmark of a profession is setting standards and demonstrating a unique body of knowledge.   Loma Linda University's Bachelor of Science Nursing Program sets concepts and integrates them into practice. The nursing profession struggles to increase its power as being recognized because nursing is the only healthcare profession that allows entry level degrees, all other health professions: i.e. medicine, pharmacy, social work, speech pathology, physical therapy, occupational therapy, they all have either Master's or now Doctorate degrees at the entry level (Huston, 2010, p. 8). Therefore, nursing is making a standard to have BSN prepared nurses.  While I continue my education with Loma Linda University I will continue to be an advocate for Nurses to belong to the American Nurses Association (ANA), the recognized professional association for all U.S. nurses. Membership reflects the money available for lobbyists to represent nursing in the political arena, currently, AMA has one of the most powerful lobbying organizations in the U.S. (Huston, 2010, p 324).  My own nursing philosophy changed with reading material and projects assigned during the RNBS program I am currently attending.
