I wonder what it is like working long shifts with people that have had a bad day, and will I be able to conduct myself in a way that does not affect my job. The first place that I looked
As we are daily seeking opportunities to support people with Developmental Disabilities, My wife who has also worked in this field has recently graduated from the Bow valley College practical nursing program. Because of our plans to make a difference in the lives of people living with developmental disabilities, my wife decided to do one of her practicum at the mental health unit at Rockyview Hospital.

After accumulating these two clinical exposures, I found myself wanting to see what it would be like in a major hospital and in a fast paced setting. I began volunteering in the Cleveland Clinic Emergency Room this past December and to say it is fast paced is an understatement. I am hands on helping nurses, I am observing physicians, and interacting with patients in ways I had never experienced before.

While completing all of these clinical experiences, I also had the privilege to shadow physicians in 8 different professions.

Seiler went on to expand about her journey to become a Physical Therapist and to enter into Physical Therapy grad school. She reflected back to her college years and encouraged me to fully embrace the study of Physical Therapy and to get in the habit of staying organized early on.
