National Service Corps
Would You Consider Working For The National Service Corps For Financial Compensation In Another Area, Another Community, Or In A Designated Poverty Area? Why or Why Not?
Working for the National Service Corps can be a source of financing in educational and training platforms for healthcare practitioners. The National Service Corps provides scholarships to nurses after enrolment to accredited U.S. schools where it provides educational fees and other school related costs (Hooker, Cawley, & Everett, 2017). This is done for a commitment to working at designated area or a poverty-stricken area for a minimum of two years (Hooker, Cawley, & Everett, 2017). The main goals of healthcare practitioners are to provide healthcare services to all the communities of the United States without any bias. This also involves the poverty-stricken areas as well as any designated areas determined by the employers. Due to my financial inability, working for the National Service Corps after they have catered for my education fees is one of the available and best strategies since there are no loans or interests to be charged on the fees (Hooker, Cawley, & Everett, 2017).
If You Accepted a Position in another Area That Was Unfamiliar to you, how would you prepare In Advance to make The Most of the Opportunity? Include the Social and Cultural Aspects of the Differences
Healthcare practitioners should be sensitive and effective in providing care to patients of other social and cultural backgrounds (Stanfield, Cross, & Hui, 2012). Social and cultural backgrounds affect how patients relate with healthcare practitioners and nurses must be well informed about the perceptions and behaviors of different social and cultural backgrounds. This will help the nurses in better understanding and relating with the individuals (Stanfield, Cross, & Hui, 2012).
A healthcare practitioner can prepare in advance by being culturally aware which means that nurses must be flexible and ready to continuously learn about the different social and culture aspects of different patients from different regions (Stanfield, Cross, & Hui, 2012). Nurses should also be very understanding and provide clear explanations to the patients and not assuming that the individuals have the knowledge. The nurses can also engage the patients in determining the most appropriate treatment procedures and should not judge patients based on their cultural and social differences (Stanfield, Cross, & Hui, 2012).
Would You Consider Working in One of the Areas Permanently?
The nursing profession is all about caring for individuals who are in need of healthcare services and not on personal needs although they impact decisions made by health care practitioners (Stanfield, Cross, & Hui, 2012). Since these areas are in need of healthcare services, which I have been privileged to provide, I can permanently work in these areas, as they need my services more than the urban areas (Stanfield, Cross, & Hui, 2012). Everyone deserves better quality healthcare services including those living in these areas and my reason for training as a healthcare practitioner was to give my services to all the citizens of America regardless where they live (Stanfield, Cross, & Hui, 2012).
