So HCE 604 is almost completed. As I have mentioned in my prior posts, it is a very candid and highly communicative class.
The last few weeks, class members have been in charge of facilitating a forum. It has been a great learning experience and the forums have been very interesting. I’ve mentioned this before but this class is so time-consuming and it’s hard in the summer to sit and do my schoolwork. Thankfully my instructor has understood my last minute emails asking for an extension on my forums or papers. Although I’m enjoying this class, I’m looking forward to its completion. This week we are doing a Task Force Simulation. It’s so confusing but basically we are running an ethics committee for a case study.
I met with my preceptor for my Capstone and Practicum last week. I’m starting to get excited about this practicum and my project. I haven’t decided on a project yet. I’m thinking about it. My preceptor is Abbe. She is the director of the oncology and
surgical department at the facility I work at. I’m looking forward to her insight and teaching.
I am also in the process of putting together a powerpoint for my department to begin a volunteering program in our department. I thought of this as I was doing my service learning through Regis at Master’s Manna. My manager, Stacy, has encouraged me to put something together. As a department, we will volunteer on Friday evenings. I’m excited about how this will positively affect our department as well as the community.
Dan and I celebrated our 11th anniversary onAugust 12th. We had a wonderful dinner at PF Chang’s and on the 13th went to Block Island for the day. It was a great day of relaxation which is something we NEVER do. We basically explored the island for a couple hours, had lunch and then lay on the beach for a couple hours. Then we headed home on the ferry, looking like lobsters. Haha. Abry starts second grade next week. I can’t believe how fast time flies. Kids grow way to fast! We also went to Sturbridge Village in Sturbridge, Mass a few weeks ago. We saw a Revolutionary War reenactment. It was really cool.
Well, as I sign out for the last time, I would like to thank everyone who had the confidence in me to write this blog. I also want to thank those that have read itand put up with the many pictures of my family. I hope I have helped someone decide that if this crazy person can do it, they could. I have thoroughly enjoyed this opportunity and am looking forward to what the next person has to blog about.
