With the majority of society being active and enthusiastic in recreations and physical
activities, it is apparent that their will be a demand for professionals involved in the correction
and rehabilitation of injuries due to physical activities. With this aspect in mind along with the
compassion to help others I have chosen to enter into the medical field.
To begin preparing myself in order to contribute in the twenty-first century I decided to
experience the medical field first hand. As of August 1998, I enrolled in Patient Care Assistant
a dual enrollment coarse with Brevard Community College. With this coarse I have
participated and completed over one hundred and twenty hours of clinical study at Jess Parrish
Hospital and Mariners Nursing home. I have also completed over a hundred hours of in class
In that time, I have experienced and received training that ranges from providing
complete care for all ranges of life to administering post-mortum care. I have also witnessed
many procedures including CT-Scans, MRI, Nuclear imaging, and special X-ray procedures. I
also spent a majority of time in the emergency room. In the ER I learned the procedures used to
provide emergency care. With the completion of this program, I will receive my certification as
a CNA (certified nurses aide). This has helped me to develop a desire to enhance basic life of all.
It has also made me aware of the medical field and the devotion that goes into that profession.
The studies and activities that I have completed are the experiences needed to become a
reliable professional in the medical field because a career is not just a job, but a life-long process
that involves many aspects of life. This dedication and determination is what is needed in order
to contribute in the twenty-first century.
