Although it was a difficult and demanding job, I enjoyed it. From then on, I worked at several facilities including home health care, hospital and a private assisted living facility. Meanwhile, I was in school and balanced working full time. As my college credits accumulated I chose to apply for the Licensed Practical Nurse program. In January 2012, I was accepted into the program and I graduated in December of 2012. My LPN education experience was amazing, it was hard and it challenged me. The program warmed me up to the field, which will eventually get me ready for the RN

I cannot wait to share this experience with my peers and instructor because going through this experience I learnt the importance of different type of social support and how it can work like a miracle and can make a huge difference in someone’s life. As nurses, if we can get few minutes to listen to our patients and encourage them with few words, we can make a huge difference to their lives. This can work like a spiritual healing. This incident not only strengthened my learning of importance of social support, but also helped me to promote my knowledge on using different communication skills such as open ended questions, listening, therapeutic communication etc.…
