After reading Debbie's post I felt the need to insert my favorite Bible verse here and ask if anyone else had a favorite Bible verse they’d be willing to share. Just whatever verse that resonates with you whether it’s common or rare, it’s the verse that motivates you and inspires you and lifts you up.
Moving on, today I had a great Friday to a fulfilling week of school. Being a TA (Teaching Apprentice) I was asked to introduce myself to the new second semester sophomore students and get to know them better up in skills lab today. I helped with proper placement of stethoscopes and verified a few BP’s as the newbies were getting a feel for what to expect. It was such a great feeling knowing I’m not in their shoes anymore but being able to help them with whatever I can. I think they’ll feel more comfortable asking me questions and demonstrating my assessment skills better than the instructor. In about two months I’ll be joining them up on the hospital clinical rotation and helping them approach patients at the bedside with basic CNA skills and beginning assessments. IT’S GOING TO BE GREAT!
What I’m realizing with my other classes is that instead of working on learning new skills and being checked off on them, we’re doing a TON more book work. I LOVE book work, yes it’s tedious, yes it’s difficult at times, but I think it’s a great way to reinforce what you know and feel accomplished after you get it done.
Tonight will be my last Friday not working for probably the rest of the semester (until May). I’ve already placed a call to my hubby at work asking where he’d like to take me for a date night. I can’t wait to just absorb some time with him!
