HOYA I January Article


Semester is drawing to a close and we are excited for all that is to come! December was very busy and passed quickly. We were able to do some volunteer projects for a local nursing home, ring the bell for the Salvation Army, and do our check off for our bed making skill. Each skill comes with a check off process, in which the student has to display knowledge and proficiency. 

Our new skills were learning peri care, partial bath, vital signs and brushing teeth. It is always easy to brush your own teeth, but a different feel to brush someone else's teeth.  It was the first personal skill our students experienced on each other. The level of awkwardness was felt in the room as each opened their mouths and put their care in the hands of a random classmate. This process not only taught them how to do the skill, but how our residents feel in these situations.  It was a good lesson learned!

Ringing the bell for the Salvation Army brought the students and those in the community joy. The students did an awesome job with music playing and bringing forth their best holiday cheer. 

In the new year we will take our final. Just a friendly reminder, if your student is not at an 80% after the final they will be unable to participate in clinical, but they will still receive their 2 high school credits upon completion of the class.  We also continue to prepare for clinicals as they are right around the corner. Clinicals will start in February! Lastly, CPR certification is always a fun week and we hope to squeeze that into January as well.

May the new year bring goals to strive for, joy, peace, and good things for all! Thank you for sharing your students with us and for allowing us to be a small part of their life’s journey
