Jills Post- Lifelong learning means always wanting to improve yourself. Trying to continue to better yourself, or at the very least stay current with the new technology. Being willing to adjust and better yourself when a new way of doing things is available. Learning from my patients, my peers, and from others not in my specialty. Learning is also from my own mistakes, and shortcomings. I see myself in the future wanting to continue my schooling to obtain my Nurse Practitioners degree.
I am suffering from burn out from studying, writing papers, and discussion boards. So prior to advancing my schooling I feel the best option is to take a break prior my next class so that I can fully focus on my studies and what I am intended to learn rather than just doing the assignments. My future professionally I see myself in a clinic, at a slow pace than I currently am at now. The busy schedule is fun, exciting, and I am learning a lot at this stage but I do not feel that it is sustainable for me.
I currently work at GI Associates and love the staff I work with, along with Aspirus Wausau Hospital. Tawanas Post Lifelong Learning The concept of lifelong learning according to me is a willingness to seek knowledge for personal benefit as well as professional achievement. Lifelong learning is the self-motived pursuit of specific skills or knowledge based on personal reasons as well as professional reasons.
As a nurse as well as a professional working in a dynamic healthcare system, lifelong learning is a systematic way of solving problems that emerges on daily basis as a nurse (Babenko et al., 2017). Lifelong learning means I must always strive to acquire new knowledge and be dynamic based on the changes that take place on daily basis. Therefore, it is important to stay tuned by learning and getting motivated on regular basis. As a nurse my plan to build nursing knowledge is by engaging in evidence-based practices, being part of the nurse’s association that seeks and applies evidence-based practices. Hence, I will be part of an organized nurses association with aim of gaining current knowledge that is commonly applied in the nurse’s arena.
Hence, being knowledgeable on current matters and best practices is more helpful to me at a personal level as well as a professional (Pichette et al., 2019). In the next five years, I am anticipating being a nurse leader with a specialization in public health practices. The entire health system is shifting towards preventive care and hence, being on the track where the nursing system is shifting to is important. It is fundamental therefore to have a nursing career that is geared towards positive change and results in the process. In the next ten years, I hope I will be able to be a leader in public health organizations in the United States.
