What is Access Key?
My name is Constantine Checa and I am a graduate of
SUNY Downstate Medical Center (B.S.N)
Queensborough Community College (A.A.S, A.S.)
. My first Associate degree is of Liberal Arts and Science with a concentration in
. My second degree is an Associate's of Applied Science with a concentration in
. I earned my Bachelor of Science degree from SUNY Downstate's RN-BS program in 2013 while working full time with Visiting Nurse Service of NY. I have plans to apply to graduate school to become a psychiatric nurse practitioner.
While in nursing school, I was selected to be a
Health Professions Scholar
and upon graduation I received The
Bernadette Rowbo Alumni Award
for an outstanding level of performance in the clinical area. At SUNY Downstate, I graduated Magna Cum Laude.
After Queensborough's Nursing Program, I was selected to be a Public Health Nurse Intern with Visiting Nurse Service of NY. The program took only new graduates and honed them into fine home care nurses. The learning curve was steep, the responsibilities tremendous, but the rewards made all the hard work worth it. I strongly believe that home care is the perfect environment through which nurses can really be advocates, educators, and caregivers.
The internship lasted 9 months and I was given the honor to speak on behalf of the interns. After the internship program, I underwent further training to become a behavioral health nurse-- the field I knew I belonged since nursing school. As a behavioral health nurse, I dealt with people in the community who needed psychiatric support-- from schizophrenia to depression and anxiety to personality disorders. I have also had a lot of experience with providing support to caregivers of clients suffering from dementia. The team I work with was so exceptional that we were deemed "Best Nursing Team" by Advance for Nurses magazine.
I believe my accomplishments are the fruits of not only my labor but of my passion for helping others. With homecare experience, I am better equipped to assist people physically, psychologically, and emotionally. I take being a nurse seriously and am a strong believer in team work. My experiences as a nurse has brought so much growth and applicable knowledge to my life that I only hope to use that knowledge to help others and truly make a difference.
On that note, please feel free to explore the rest of my page. I have posted some of my projects, power points, and papers that I have done during my college career under the showcase tab as well as awards.
