What I learned in Sociology 101

Good Essays
What I have learned in this class… I learned a great deal about where people come from and how taking sociology would help me a great deal in my nursing career. Sociology takes cultures as a group instead of looking at an individual. As the saying goes; “It takes a village to raise a child.” We are who we are not only from the way we were raised but also by the environment and culture in which we are surrounded by. The medical field deals a lot with ethics and there are so many ethical questions that have to be answered, having knowledge of different cultures perspectives will allow me to handle each patient with the utmost respect. I have always loved learning what made people “tick” the way they do and I thought with all the courses I have taken with psychology that I had a really good grasp on it, sociology has opened my mind to understanding people more than I ever could have imagined.

I want to make sure that they are at peace and that they are comfortable. Because what I am choosing to do is something that most people would run from I had to understand what death meant to others and why most are afraid of it even though it is something that happens to us all. Sociology has enlightened me on cultures perception of death and what it means to them. Sociological inquiry can illuminate and help make sense of the relationship between private troubles like illness, premature death, and lung cancer and public issues. Sociology is a value to nurses to enable them to question the values and beliefs of their professional and the

From the day he was born he was hooked up on beeping machines and glow fingers, he wasn’t on them for very long but enough to make me always remember the way they sounded.

    The past three weeks I can say that I have learned quite a lot, I never really thought I could understand what entailed through organized crime. There are many different attributes that were involved to form organized crime. Without knowing exactly what those attributes are you would never be able to figure out what it takes to organize crime or even get why they call it organized crime. I would say to myself why do these mafia and big groups put so much time and effort into making sure that there…
