Am Rachael, I graduated in August 2019 with a Bachelor of Science in nursing. Having worked in the progressive step-down unit, I did a board exam which I passed, and therefore, I have had different nursing experiences through many exams and learning. I have contributed to many nursing professions as I have the necessary skills alongside the profession’s personality. I have been able to increase positive patient outcomes through positive work environments. Currently, I am working in Psych Hospital, and I like the field. As a nurse, I act as a direct caregiver who spends most of the time with patients more than health care providers, making it necessary for decision-makers to hear us as the decisions will impact our patients’ outcomes. Unfortunately, nurses have not been highly involved in policy-making hence affecting health care delivery.
