How BSN nursing degree and work experiences in the hospital, have influenced your ability to become a leader in nursing field

Nursing is a very challenging and demanding career, however I feel the rewards have been great and that my education has thoroughly prepared me to embark on this career. I really enjoy being able to help and care for people, and the field of nursing allows me to connect with patients on a personal and in-depth level that appeals to me greatly and drew me to this field over a decade ago.


My work experience from social determinants perspective

I have always believed that one will reap the benefits from how hard one is willing to work, but that is not always the case.  I am a settled immigrant in Canada with the expectation of changing my life and future.  Stress were I came from was high because work and resources were not readily available and I relocated to make a change in my environment.  I worked long days over 40 hours a week which required me to stand the entire time.  I expected that I would live better than where I came from, but that was not the case.  Stress is excessively high at home and works because I have not been able to meet the ends of my demands.  Social detriments plays a big role in my overall work experience has definitely had some negative impacts my overall well-being.
