I am a graduate of the University of Mary Washington. I studied to become a neurosurgeon and to ultimately research the undiscovered clauses of the brain. I also plan on working with a hospital for 5 to 10 years then moving on to start my own practice and to have different offices throughout Maryland and Virginia.
I was the person the entire staff looked for to get on the phone or interact in person with any disgruntled client. I was also the person chosen most frequently by doctors to relay complex medical information to clients of all backgrounds.
Skill in dealing with irate, irrational people is not something I was born with, so acquiring it was very much ‘trial by fire.' I am proud of it—I made loyal clients out of people with gripes—but don't want to sound like I am bragging.
The Neurosurgery patient is the one who has been undergone to surgery in the brain or in the peripheral nervous system, and might suffer complications during per operative period. They are patients who require attention in areas specialized in critical health care and who will need advanced monitorization, due to it is a high risk postoperative. It is in this point, in the one in which the nurse develops a function of vital importance in the health care, through the constant and specialized attention, to get the best quality of health care. The nurse should be able to evaluate, prevent, control and identify risk situations, avoiding complications and helping patient recovery
The first step in the path to becoming a neurosurgeon involves a pre-medical undergraduate education. This usually includes a core curriculum consisting of:
A year of chemistry with the appropriate laboratory courses
A year of organic chemistry with laboratory courses
A year of biology with laboratory courses
A year of physics with laboratory courses
A year of English
A year of calculus or other advanced math classes, including statistics
For American students, the next step typically is to attend an accredited U.S. medical school.
Toward the end of medical school, medical students interested in a career in neurosurgery will apply for a residency training program at an academic medical center through The National Residency Matching Program (NMRP), the central application source for residency applicants.
