  • 2. In the beginning was orientationweek…The first week at health academy was one that I will never forget. My car brokedown at the first day of class which was eventful and stressful. After arriving andmeeting Mrs. Denise Clarke-Hang, we were given our logins and passwords.We were then giving many lectures on HIPPA, Officer Dick gave us a run downon security, Misty from Volunteer Services, and the behavior that was expectedfrom us being in the health academy. I knew that after this orientation week, Iwas more comfortable knowing that there were many people to look out for us atthese rotations.

  • 24. Blogs Along with every rotation, we blog about our experience and share it on Blackboard with our peers. We are able to comment each others’ blogs which is neat to see how our rotation would differ from a peer’s rotation at the same unit.

  • 25. Blog Example 1: Rotation 1 My first rotation at the CICU was indeed interesting. Although the two days that I was at rotation, not much happened since most of the patients were stabilized after surgery and they were mostly asleep. On my first day, my nurse, showed me how nurses check patients who are diabetics to see if their blood sugar levels are where they need to be. I was fascinated by how everything is just scanned by a scanner and all is recorded into the computer. I read my first medical chart on my first day too which was neat. It is amazing how when you walk into a patients room, you know nothing about them, but when you read their charts, you learn a lot about them and their condition. Thats how we should go on in life, even if you do not know the person, you should always think of the best for them just like how a nurse and a doctor might not know anything about their patients background, but they do all they can to save their patient and to make them healthy again. On my second day, I got to witness a nurse clean out a trachea tube which is usually cleaned every four hours depending on the patient. The patient that the nurse cleaned has coughed a lot the night before which resulted in a lot of blood and mucus that needed to be clean, overall, the two days I spend in the CICU was very helpful and educational. Next stop... the diabetic unit! :) God bless! P: 555.123.4568 F: 555.123.4567 123 West Main Street, New York, NY 10001 | www.rightcare.com
  • 26. Blog Example 2: Rotation 5 My fifth rotation was at the operating room! I got to see a surgery finish up on my first day and I saw the beginning of a surgery at the beginning. It was very interesting to see the preparation of each surgery and to see the surgeon, the resident scrub up. It astounded me how much technology has helped surgery due to HD screens for me to see what is going on. It is really neat to see what is going on inside the patient during surgery. I got to scrub up for the first time which was really neat. I got to go into their locker room which was bigger than I expected. I am excited for my next rotation at the PICU. P: 555.123.4568 F: 555.123.4567 123 West Main Street, New York, NY 10001 | www.rightcare.com
  • 27. Blog Example 3: Rotation 7 My seventh rotation was at the NICU and this by far has been my favorite! This was even better than physical therapy and I said previously that it was my favorite. There were a set of twins that were only a little over one pound...ONE POUND! I have never seen someone so small and delicate. It really was heartwarming to see how amazing technology has changed the medical industry, without certain machines, these premature babies would not have a chance of survival, but with the technology we have now, they will get better and get healthier and eventually go home. My nurse said that was the most rewarding part of her job, was in the case of working with elderly sick people, some get better, most do not and they end up passing away. Working with babies in the intensive care unit, they usually get better and will eventually go home. This was a very friendly and loving unit. My experience in this unit was so positive and great! If I did become a nurse, I would be an intensive care nurse. Next stop, the burn unit! P: 555.123.4568 F: 555.123.4567 123 West Main Street, New York, NY 10001 | www.rightcare.com
  • 28. Blog Example 4: Rotation10My tenth rotation was at NCCU which is theneurocritical care unit. My day 1 nurse, Clara, wasphenomenal. She was so smart and explainedeverything to me and I learned about both of patients. Isaw an old man who was attached to a ventilator andhow the nurse orally cleaned him. Performing his oralcare was interesting to see, the nurse used atoothbrush, but instead of bristles, it was a sponge andinstead of toothpaste, it was a moisturizing substancethat helps his mouth to not be so dry. There was also awoman who was only 28 and she was in the criticalunit because there were small bleeds in her brain.Overall this was a really great unit with great nurseswho were very educated and kind. They were glad toanswer any questions. P: 555.123.4568 F: 555.123.4567 123 West Main Street, New York, NY 10001 | www.rightcare.com
  • 29. Blog Example 5: Rotation11 This was a really fun rotation. Following Tu around was awesome since she mostly drew blood from newborn babies, but it was heartwarming to see all the different babies. On the 1st day, it was mostly drawing blood, but on my second day, it was super interesting. I got to go to the different areas of the lab, the 1st one was the blood station where they analyze all the blood that they get and determine what the patient has or whether the patient is improving. The 2nd area was the urine station where they diagnosed certain things based on what is in ones urine. The 3rd station was the actually blood lab where when a patient comes in, she determines what blood type they have and she is also in charge of making sure theres enough for patients who needed a blood transplant. The 4th area was mostly focused on the big instruments that they used to run tests and to determine different disease and the last area was where the area that is infected or cancerous that is removed from surgery is looked at. A doctor would cut up little pieces and put them in a small case that looked like a cassette tape and it would actually become slides so he could look at it and determine if the cancer is spreading, is it benign, etc. Overall this was a great learning experience, the lab has great people.

  • 30. Career Choices One of the main goals of the Health Academy is to help us narrow down what we would want to do in the medical field in the near future. These are my choices. P: 555.123.4568 F: 555.123.4567P: 316.260.244042, Wallaby Way, | maria.vo14@gmail.com 123 West Main Street, New York, NY 10001 | www.rightcare.comSydney, Australlia
  • 31. Career Choice 1: FamilyTherapist The occupation of a family therapist has always interests me because I have always wanted to help families with their problems. I want to not only rebuild families but to make them stronger and for them to lead a healthy and happy life together as a family. To be a family therapist, some schooling is required and most likely, is a master’s degree in counseling. With the master’s degree, one must also have at least three thousand hours of clinical experience that are completed under a supervisor, and state- recognized exams. Certain requirements for the job of a family therapist include completing education requirements every year and must have completed courses such as sociology, social work, psychology, and knowing modern foreign languages would be helpful. With completion of the essential education, one can apply to local agencies, hospitals, and clinics, but usually with training and schooling, one can make connections for future jobs involving social work and psychology (State University).

  • 32. Career Choice 2: MedicalAssistant The occupation of a certified a certified medical assistant has always interested me because I would be able to participate in working in a doctor’s office and to help things go smoothly. I believe in helping others and helping the office run smoothly. I love the fact that I would get to work as a team with the doctors. The schooling required for this job would be a high school year degree, but with it, one must also have training. In training, a student would learn anatomy, physiology, medical ethics, and medical terminology, laboratory techniques, clinical procedures, and first aid. Training in computer skills, accounting, and insurance processing is also essential. With completion of training, one can acquire a job by applying for the open jobs available through the school of their training or to apply to work for a hospital or doctor’s office. (State University) P: 555.123.4568 F: 555.123.4567 123 West Main Street, New York, NY 10001 | www.rightcare.com
  • 33. Career Choice 3: MedicalSecretary The occupation of a medical secretary draws interest to me because right now, in high school, I am involved in a lot of activities and I love to keep things in order and to organize things for people to make their job easier for it to run more smoothly. I would love to be able to keep track of medical records or even to answer the phone. I would love to help run a doctor’s office. For this occupation, a high school degree is needed. One must be trained in word processing, filing, and bookkeeping. Knowing the use of computer and Microsoft word would help the training also. Most places that are looking for employees will have on-the-job training in medical or dental field, but having some training will set one apart. Once one is trained, it is easy to apply to different medical offices; one is not limited to just one spot. I am able to apply at the hospital or at the dentist office or even a doctor’s office. (State University) P: 555.123.4568 F: 555.123.4567 123 West Main Street, New York, NY 10001 | www.rightcare.com
  • 34. Career Choice 4:Receptionist The occupation of a billing and coding receptionist has interest me because this is what my mom does for a living. I have seen my mom at work and it really does fascinate me. The job is stressful, but to be in charge of the money of the patients is very fascinating to me. The education that is needed is a high school degree plus completion of a two year training program which will become an associate degree. After training, one must take a test to become a RHIT which stands for “registered health information technician”. Acquiring a job after all this training is often offered by the place that one got training from. (State University). P: 555.123.4568 F: 555.123.4567 123 West Main Street, New York, NY 10001 | www.rightcare.com
  • 35. Career Choice 5: MassageTherapist The occupation of a massage therapist has interest me because I think massaging is much underrated. People who are involved in this job helps a lot of people to relive with pain and stress. A high school degree is needed plus training in a massage therapy program which could last from 6 months to 12 months. In training, courses such as anatomy, physiology, pathology, hygiene, public health, and professional ethics are discussed plus after training, one must past to get a massaging license. Once you are done training you can apply through the place where you trained or you could apply to country clubs, health clubs, or even massage parlors themselves.

  • 36. Lectures In the Health Academy, we are given many lectures on the different careers of the medical field and afterwards, we write a summary about each one. These lectures are either at Newman University or at the classroom and St. Francis P: 555.123.4568 F: 555.123.4567P: 316.260.244042, Wallaby Way, | maria.vo14@gmail.com 123 West Main Street, New York, NY 10001 | www.rightcare.comSydney, Australlia
  • 37. Lecture 1: Dr. Coleman Dr. Coleman is a community psychologist and she works in the nursing homes and with groups of people versus being a clinical therapist who works one on one with patients. Her hours are more flexible and she has time to raise a family and live a life. She also gets to travel a lot which was interesting. I found it neat that a lot of times when one is talking about a therapist, one thinks of one on one time, there is not a lot of talk about community psychologists that work with a group of people. She helps to promote healthy lifestyles and how to change one’s environment to prevent problems to occur. She also teaches to treat people as people, most time, in nursing homes, there is a hierarchy and the patient is usually treated as a “child” and is spoke with elder speak. Elder speak is when one speaks to an adult as if the adult is a child. The pitch of the voice is high and it becomes more demanding and condescending. This helps out a lot, when one is not talked with elder speak, the elderly will feel like a person and listen and work with the nurse instead of lashing out of frustration or anger. P: 555.123.4568 F: 555.123.4567 123 West Main Street, New York, NY 10001 | www.rightcare.com
  • 38. Lecture 2: Dr. Summerhouse A MD is a doctor of medicine and is one of degrees that would fall under family medicine. The M.D. degree is typically earned in four years. It was very neat to heart Dr. Summerhouse’s story, to know that he went to college and was a teacher before deciding to go to medical school was a very rare story, but it was inspiring that he went back to become a doctor. For someone to say that it is not too late and to go back to more schooling to become a doctor was moving. Dr. Summerhouse is a D.O. which means doctor of osteopathic medicine. DO are licensed to practice the full scope of medicine and surgery which I was not aware of since Dr. Summerhouse said that had delivered many babies and to even assist in surgery. I actually did not know that a doctor had to renew their license and to in a sense “continue to go to school” which I thought was a good idea. Dr. Summerhouse was very funny and had a great personality. I find it rewarding that he worked and went to school for most of his life and now he can enjoy it. One of the perks of being in the medical field is being able to be financially secure for yourself and for your family. His job has allowed him to live comfortably, be involved in his children’s life, live a life that he wants, and to do what he loves to do. Even now even if he is retired and does not have a license, he can still perform medical procedures under an emergency situation. It is great to know that he loved what he did and he was great at doing it. He has a story to tell others on how he did get to do a lot of things being a DO and was able to assist in many different jobs.

  • 39. Lecture 3: Nursing Program The nursing program at Newman is a very convenient. Not only is it one of the most successful programs, but the faculty can give students one on one attention. Depending on where the graduate wants to work, being a nurse, gives great opportunities to find a job after graduation. Upon being accepting into the nursing program, there are a list of requirements that are needed to be met, one must have admission to Newman University, have a completion of 60 semester hours, to have a minimum GPA of 2.75, an interview with the Admission and Progression Committee, and once admitted, the student is required to complete a CPR Healthcare Provider Course. This is a competitive program and only a limited amount of students will be admitted. The convenient and great thing about the program is that is one is in high school and fits the criteria, one can get a scholarship to where the student is already guaranteed a spot in the nursing program once graduating from a four year degree. This is a tremendous opportunity for the students are certain that they are going down the career of being a nurse. Even though the program has a large group of students, they are divided into small classes, which is suitable for students who want individual help and students can have a one on one relationship with their instructor. This will help them become more successful. The nursing program at Newman is a ideal program for anyone interested in the nursing field.

  • 40. Lecture 4: Michael Poynter A dental technician manufacture dental prosthetics including bridges, crowns and dentures according to specifications dentists send to them. They help make and provide orthodontic appliances, crowns and bridges, complete dentures, partial dentures, or ceramics. Michael Poynter was quite a character and he explained this job very well. The job of a dental technician is a very underrated and their job is very important. The job of making the crowns and the fake teeth that go into helping a dentist to perform their job is overlooked a lot. A job of a dental technician is a great occupation and the odds of you having a job are quite high. I loved that Mr. Poynter could tattoo his teeth. That was very fascinating to know that even teeth could be art and for someone to have different designs on their teeth. Rachel Wiebe was also a great speaker and she spoke her job as a dental hygienist and a dental hygienist is a licensed oral health professional who focuses on preventing and treating oral diseases-both to protect teeth and gums, and also to protect patients total health. They clean teeth and review their patient’s records. They have a very strong bond with their patients which is great. What people do not seem to understand is how important your oral health is, when your mouth is not health, it effects the rest of your body and how you function as a whole. It is very important.

  • 41. Lecture 5: Dr. Mark Toilo Dr. Mark Toilo was a wonderful speaker. His picture of how competitive medical school is was genius. For many students to go to medical school and to be ambitious, a lot of them are lost and weeded out from the rest. A lot of students are all thinking that they will be successful doctors and dentists, but in reality, the very best of the best will be the ones to succeed. It is sad, but it is the truth. Medical school is designed for those who can handle the heat and to be able to make it through until the very end. It is truly for the best students that will one day be the doctors that will be saving lives. Dr. Toilo’s incredible faith was extremely inspiring. He was honest to say that dentists have the highest suicide rates and the highest divorce rates. It is very easy to under mind and to forget how much dentists go through every day. They are the ones that is hated on by children and not everyone enjoys going to the dentist if not anyone enjoys going to the dentist. I respected him a lot for being so honest. Faith is a very important factor for happiness that is easily forgotten. Most jobs in healthcare, being a dentist or a doctor, is extremely rewarding financially, but that is where it is easy to fall into the pit of greed. Greed is a very scary and addictive thing, once one wants more money, nothing will ever be fully satisfying. For him to say that God has to be first, then family, and then business, this may seem like a simple piece of advice, but it will be a hard thing to follow once one is successful. Putting God first and faith first will lead to a strong finish in whatever obstacle one is facing. P: 555.123.4568 F: 555.123.4567 123 West Main Street, New York, NY 10001 | www.rightcare.com

  • 43. In ConclusionOverall, this academy has helped me a lot in deciding what Iwant to do with my life. I have grown a much larger interestin the medical field. I have also grown a greater respect fornurses, their job is extremely underrated and they do somuch for their patients. Through all the lectures androtations, this was truly an interesting experience and hasshaped my career choices.
