Personal Narrative: A Career In Radiology
When I was seventeen years old, I took a professional medical careers course at New Market Skills Center in Washington to make up for some credits that I had missed for maternity absence. I continued the program my senior year. We prepared for the Certified Nursing Assistant exam and had clinical rotation for two weeks at Panorama City, a nursing home.
Through my clinical experience, I learned that being able to empathize with your patient is very important in the healthcare field. The first week I was at Panorama City, I helped some CNAs turn a patient so they can change her dressing on a bedsore that she had got from another nursing home. The whole time she was fighting us, yelling at us, and scratching us.
