HOW ARE WE HERE! It is hard to believe we are entering the last four weeks of school. These students have worked very hard and I am so proud of each of them.

This past month we explored death and dying, mom/baby, wrapping up clinical, fire station visit, and starting the world of work.

Death and dying is never easy. Some have experienced death just this year and for those who have in the past it still feels like yesterday.  We did skits to learn about the process of grief and how we work our way through a terminal diagnosis. Serenity Hospice House came and educated us on all that hospice offers and about the uniqueness of their facility. Hospice does not mean you are dying tomorrow, it means that you want to live the best you can with the time you have left. 

During the mom /baby unit I think the  students were scarred for life and most don’t want to have babies now, just kidding.  For many this chapter was eye opening on the process of labor and delivery. They learned proper care of babies and moms. 

Careers forgotten! We had Hillary from Freeport Fire come and tell us all about the careers in the fire/paramedic field. It amazed students on how they work half the month, have awesome benefits, retirement benefits and a family atmosphere. 

Clinicals are coming to an end. These students have taken great care of our residents and the residents so enjoyed the extra attention. They are one step closer to pinning on May 9th at 630 at St. John Church. Then it will be onto the state test at the end of May.  

Time to think about what the future holds for each of them. We have begun our world of work and it will continue on through the beginning of May. Students are learning it is not all about what you make for money, but finding your passion. If you work in something you love you will not work a day in your life. Resumes, letters, mock interviews, and career exploration is the excitement yet to come.

Lastly, the students of the month for March were Miley, Sadie, Payton, and Paige, the theme was honest and integrity.

As always thank you for raising great kids and for sharing them with us!
