My name is Drew Newman and I am in school to become a Nurse, but getting a bachelor of science in interdisciplinary studies with a minor in sociology. I plan to help people in hospitals or other medical settings feel as comfortable as they would when they are in their own home. It is important to me for a patient to be treated as if they are in a supportive environment as if family is present at all time because nobody enjoys being in a hospital.
As an interdisciplinary major with a sociology minor, I hope to gain insight about how people interact, as well as different symbols of communication and their meanings. My focus is to be able to have a lot of knowledge in many different subject areas and use all of that knowledge and apply it to nursing. With knowledge in multiple disciplines, it will be helpful when dealing with patients of different cultures, races, and classes to make them all feel more comfortable with whatever situation they are in.
My portfolio will express the reasons for my career choice and how it will help people in the future. I know that my communication skills and dedication to providing prolific care will allow me to make patients' happier in a negative environment. It is very known that hospitals are not a favorite place to be for everyone, so if my presence will make it a little better than it will please me. The group that hopefully will be effected the most by seeing this will be hospitals looking for a caring nurse and patients that have been helped by my abilities to not only provide care but provide comfort.
