Ever since high school, I knew I wanted to work in the pathology field. I thought I wanted to be a pathologist. I talked to the career counselors at my school and expressed my interest. Fortunately for me, I was contacted not much after about an internship at Montefiore Medical Center.
At my physician office, the staff always dress and act professionally. I have been going to my physician since I was 6, I have even job shadowed my physician. I do not recall a time my physician or his staff has ever been unprofessional. They are always dressed in scrubs or business casual. As a medical assistant, you can ensure your professional appearance by a few steps:
Lani: I was helping for someone’s project for COMM 245; I was in the video lab, in the studio. I was on campus and decided to contact everyone I knew who comes to the school. I remember I sent out a snap saying guys I think there is a shooting, be careful and then I started sending out individual texts to people making sure they were okay, like hey are you good? Stay out of an area. I didn’t know how many people were getting shot. I just knew it’s not good and that we have to be careful. At first, the campus was like we are unsure, just be careful, and then it took some time till I finally got an email that said stay on campus and were held there for about two hours, I just kept recording.
Being a Dental Assistant changed my view-point in healthcare, I have learned a lot being lead dental assistant. There have been many times in my career as a dental assistant, when I would learn something new, whether it was related to health field or learning something new from my peers. Just when had started achieving the experience in dentistry, I met a major accident, which had major impact on me. I was asked to take bed rest and was advised to not assist as a dental assistant, due to increasing pain in back. Therefore, I had to reconsider about my career planning and development. After shadowing a nurse's clinic rotation, I decided to search for nursing schools. My interest toward nursing school increased after shadowing a nurse during
I began volunteering at my town 's nursing home in high school. Initially, I volunteered as an arts and craft aide, coloring and drawing with the patients, but soon after my sister I transformed that time slot into a performance hour, doing our gymnastics, hip-hop, ppm, cheer, and kickline routines for the patients. It was very rewarding to see the patients smile in amazement and awe and also knowing that they looked forward to seeing me each weekend. At the same it was sad to see familiar faces disappear. After I acquired Home Health Aide certificate in the summer of 2013, I was able to help physically care for the patients. I helped shower, change, and provide other personal care.
One of the experience i have that involved with the retrieval cue should be working as a medical assistant again after 1 year of working at somewhere else and doing different things. I've realize how much stuff that i have forgot after 1 year of not interacting with doing thing that a medical assistant need to do. As a medical assistant have a lot of different tasks that need to remember in order to assist the physician. however, the unclear memories that i had for interview patients to obtain medical information and measure their vital signs helped me a lot with finishing the first step of the situation. however, when the situation gets complicated such helping patients to fill out forms, this is one of the struggle that i had. On the other

I have to give credit to Amy Friery and to one of my peers. They really have been by side through it all, they helped me maintain my confidence level through it all. I believe that confidence is one of the great qualities anyone can have. Having confidence has helped me to love myself, for example, I love my
Physical Therapy Assistant is an interesting field; it is a job that helps individuals in need. I interviewed Lucero because she is currently working in the same field that I see myself working in the future. The interview took place on November 29th; it lasted an hour and a half. The interview was about me trying to understand more about my future life as a physical therapist assistant.

Lucero works as physical therapist assistant, in a physical therapy clinic in Van Nuys; She has been working in this field for about seven years already. Lucero works
Nursing, and everything that it entails, cannot be easily described in just one simple word or phrase. It goes beyond the meaning of a profession and the stereotypical definition of treating the ill. Nursing is the “protection, promotion, and optimization of health and abilities, prevention of illness and injury, alleviation of suffering through the diagnosis and treatment of human response, and advocacy in the care of individuals, families, communities, and populations” (American Nurses Association, 2010, p. 1). Therefore, it is a career that requires dedication, passion, critical thinking, and knowledge. It demands commitment and an understanding of its core values and concepts, as well as the nurse’s own personal philosophy and principles.

I began college in 2014 at the age of 58 years-old to change my area of employment and do something that is far more interesting to me, working within the social services field. I realize the fact I was brought up by two dysfunctional, abusive parents in a chaotic home lead me to search out that same type of familiar relationship when I left home at the age of seventeen. In short, I married a domestic violence abuser and alcoholic when I was 19 years-old and had 5 children. Ten years into the marriage, when I had finally reached the end of my rope, a local police officer helped me to obtain a Protection from Abuse order and removed my husband from the home. This era was the birth of the Protection from Abuse orders and for me and this new
Hi Matt, this is Logan Sanders. After completing the preliminary Residential Assistant training I was not placed in a position. However, I was told by Shannon Jolley that "you are the very first person on our alternates’ list and will likely be awarded a position, even in the next few weeks". I received this email in early March, and understand that it I was not guaranteed a position. Regardless, I wanted to make contact to say that I am still interested in taking a position if one becomes available. I also wanted to ensure that I hadn't been written off for some reason, as it is peculiar that after four months no one has changed their
This year, I experienced both a personal and academic obstacle that correlate with one another. In January, I started the year long Medical Assisting program at my school. Prior to beginning this program, I was so excited to be getting a medically centered education, and learning about the field I wanted to expand my career in. After entering the program and learning that there is so much more to medicine than just taking care of patients, I began to lose my interest. This was shocking to me since, my whole life up until this year, I believed I was going to become an amazing medical doctor. It was extremely hard to accept the fact that, the career I had always dreamt of wasn’t something I was passionate about. I knew if I didn’t have that passion,
The following,is an article written by Jerry Brindley when she was a Senior Aide in Decatur:
I lived in Elizabeth, New Jersey ever since my family and I came here from the Philippines. I now reside in Branchburg, NJ with my husband (David), my three girls (Adriana -9, Elena – 6, Kayla – 3), my in-laws (Maria and Claudio, who will be moving to Florida in 2 years and 5months, but no one is counting), and Kivo, a 6 month old Chihuahua mix puppy. As you can imagine, we have a full, busy and noisy home, but I wouldn’t trade it for anything in the world.
