I guess the time has come for me to share with all of you what I’ve been currently doing. I’ve currently been in Naples for about a week now because I have made the decision to become a Certified Nursing Assistant and am taking a certification course here which is about 3 weeks long. The reason I chose to do it here in Naples and not my city, Miami is because it takes longer to do it over there. In Miami it takes approximately 6months to do it at a technical school. I’m going through an independent RN who teaches the class and may I point out I am learning quiet a lot.
I’ve always had a passion for the medical field, it’s always been something that interest me. I love helping others and making them feel good. I feel like the medical field is not for everyone but if you love it then you should consider being part of the healthcare team, whether that is to be an RN, LPN, LVN or CNA. The wonderful thing about the medical field is that there is always room to grow and learn. There’s always something new to learn.
For those of you that don’t know I have my MA (medical assistant certification) I received this in 2008 and I never really got a chance to use it. When the school that I went to during that time (TCI) I felt like no one would really hire me because I didn’t have experience. Now, I don’t feel that way, I’m taking this CNA course and I understand medical terminology very well. I had a test on Monday and got the test back Wednesday with 100% which I wasn’t expecting but I did study! I’m terrible at test taking, I always blank out. I think that was always my fear that held me back from doing what I truly loved which is Nursing. Maybe, this is the first step.
The RN teaching this class is so well versed in all that has to do with the medical field. The fact that she takes time off her week to teach these classes is simply great. I’m so happy that I’m continuing my education in the medical field. I hope to inspire those who are thinking about going back to school period. Maybe there is something you’re really passionate about and want to go back to school to finish your studies, do it.
My classes are 3x a week and we have tests’ 2x a week. I’m proud of myself and feel like this was long overdue but hey, better late than never. I just really wanted to share this with you all and let you know that I won’t stop blogging, I will continue writing. Obviously, it will be during times that I can and am not working. I thank you all for your support & encouragement always!
