Working side-by-side with the PA over the past year, has allowed me to truly grasp the extent of the level of knowledge and skillset required of a PA. She divulges in her work; changing gastrostomy tubes, treating both bleeding and leaking stoma sites, comforting patients with genuine empathy; a true master of her craft. I am amazed at the level of autonomy in the PA’s daily routine; being able to develop treatment plans for patients, performing procedures and making recommendations. When situations arise that require the physician’s expertise, he is only a phone call away. From their conversations, it is obvious the physician and PA have a very close relationship built on mutual respect and trust. I gained a very clear understanding of the physician-PA relationship and the communication necessary to effectively provide the best patient care.
The American dream is a powerful dream that was significant in the novel The Great Gatsby by Scott Fitzgerald. It was evident that this dream only truly caused corruption and destruction. The desire for something sometimes causes people to be someone they are not and this usually does not result in a positive outcome. The American Dream is defined as someone starting low on the economic or social level, and working hard towards prosperity and or wealth and fame. Most characters in the novel The Great Gatsby all wanted money, wealth and happiness and would do anything in their power to get this. The Great Gatsby is a novel that shows what happened to the American Dream in the 1920’s, which is a time period when the dreams became corrupted. The American dream not only causes corruption but has caused destruction. Myrtle, Gatsby and Daisy have all been corrupted and destroyed by the dream and it was clear to be true. Money cannot buy you happiness which is something that the three characters in the novel The Great Gatsby truly did not realize.
