11 WHAT DO THE STUDENTS SAY I have learned … more life lessons and more about who I am from being in this class than I have in my lifetime. You can’t always know what to expect, not just in nursing, but in every day life. You must ADAPT Learning how to work with people whose mental capabilities aren’t sound – frightening – I’m now more patient, not afraid My social skills have improved with the opportunities I have had to grow as a person I now believe I have a person in life. I can be the one to make a difference in someone else’s life. I have learned how to look at others and life differently I feel as if I know the “real world” better. Learned how be compassionate. Taking care of the elderly takes time and effort. I was afraid to wipe another persons buttock – now look at me I work at a facility and do it often. I have learned how to help people live and help them die. First day of class – I was looking at the other students saying “I will not get along with that one.” But through the class and clinicals I have made new friends..they have shown me what I can do to make a difference. I can now work well with others. Team work – I/We have learned to play to each other strengths and help in weaknesses Realize college and high school are so different. Here you are responsible for what you do and don’t do. At the high schools there are always second chances and not always with any penalties. Here – it’s due and you need to get it done. Planning, organizing,

12 WHAT DO THE STUDENTS SAY cont. Here at the college, my teachers aids me in learning the materials versus just teaching me. It’s different. It’s good. Self motivation is important. No one stays on you to get things in on time. It is expected that you will get them in on time. Students initiated conflict resolution practices. Opportunity to learn and refine leadership skills throughout the class Flavor of high school, but level of college Alex – freshman in college transitioning from Ivy Tech – Lafayette to Purdue. I strongly believe this program has made me a better person more responsible.. Become more mature from the first day of class until the last. I like to credit the program for many habits that are normally accompanied by age or instilled by parents – language “yeah sue – yep” became Yes sir, yes Ma’am” Being able to shadow other health care workers like paramedics – was fun and informative. This allowed me to view how the workforce operated first hand. Prepared me for living on my own, for the responsibilities of college and the hardships of the real world Alex’s – Mom I think Alex’s decision to apply for the program was one of the best decisions he ever made. He wanted to explore health careers and the program served that purpose well. He was apprehensive. I had some doubts about his commitment and follow through. Clinical portion - is when I saw a change. He had always been a great kid and then I saw him becoming a great young man. He love the experiences from EMS, to surgery watching a knee replacement. He continues his education in pursuit of a health career. His capacity to be focused, reliable, dependable and compassionate…
