Paula’s Answer

Hello,

That is a very good question, I think that you when you know yourself well enough that you are able to evaluate how you would adapt and work in that type of environment. If it is something that you are truly passionate about it will work out fine and will come easy, it just takes time especially in the beginning when starting off in the field. I myself took time to adapt because I have always been a quiet person and kept to myself but always wanted to help people and care for those who are sick and just help the community and when I started nursing it really was overwhelming at first because of all the people that you have to talk to everyday. It gets easier as time goes on and you know what to expect and how your role works, it really helped me with my people skills and communication which I am thankful for. I feel that it will be something you will feel great to do and you will learn how you are able to cope with stressful situations and how to also communicate with others and educate.

Gabriella,

I think it is better to assess yourself first and know who you are before you try to shape yourself to become something else. We all should desire to grow and develop our work and leadership styles. The best way to do this is to recognize your strengths. When I started my career path, I focused on developing my weaknesses and tried to make myself fit the role I wanted to become. A mentor helped me see that I have God-given strengths and talents that I enjoy. When I began to focus on those strengths instead of weaknesses, my passion for my career came alive! I even made a career change to be in a role I was naturally good at but also provided me with challenges to overcome. I found my sweet spot by aligning my mission, passion, and talent. In order to do this, you must identify these things in your own life.

What is your mission? (How do you want to help people? What need do you want to meet?)
What is your passion? (What is the thing that fires you up inside?)
What are your talents? (What are you good at?)

When you know these things, see if midwife, healthcare, or hospital jobs fit it. Get to know people who are in this field. Find a mentor who has walked the path you want to be on. Ask them to be honest with you in how you can attain this career. If you find a trusted mentor, they will help you to identify your strengths and improve on them.

Best of luck to you!

Caryn
