Also great instructors are as follows: for AP 1 Mr. **** ******* for Microbiology Ms. *****, AP2 Ms. ****, Pharmacology Mrs. * at Rio Grande. First three are at Valle Verde Campus.
I've been working in getting into the nursing program at EPCC for some time now. I'm a mother of three, and started attending in the Summer of 05. It was a painsaking and difficult time. I had just lost my father and attending schools was one way of dealing with my loss. I can't say it's been an easy ride, because it hasn't. But, I'm on the verge of ranking in June. God Willing I'll pass the math portion of the accuplacer. It was to the trig portion that my earlier attempts I had failed. But, I've strapped my boots back on and like they say "Got back on the Saddle". I've been taking tutoring on the accuplacer web site as well as the college web site. If ever you feel scared of a counselor feel free to look for another one. Ms. Guerrero at the Rio Grande campus is a fine one. Never ever hesitate to ask questions, cuz at times you will be told many different things and given bogus info. As for paying for nursing school. Here's the heads up once you've completed your pre-req attending the Nursing Orientation. If you rank into the program look into the program available by Project Arriba. They are located at the Atrium bldg. on Westmoreland on the side of the Sams located at Cielo Vista. This program will generally cover most cost. With the only condition that you will already be entering the program and that you fall in the wages category. And the counselors there are AWESOME. They are always there to help with whatever you need. I wish you continued success in your nursing future.
I am going on 42. I decided two years ago to return to school. My Fathers' passing made me more determined to fulfill my goal. I have three children ages 14, 10 & 9. Sometimes I wonder what I got myself into. Then I look at my Three Beautiful children, and I know why. It's been one wild ride with getting over my basics & pre req, now looking forward to the real nitty gritty! Taking it ONE DAY AT A TIME!!!!
:heartbeat What a wonderful thing you did. When we were losing our Father to heart failure. We endured a many unprofessional and uncaring health workers. But, thanks to a few loving and supportive ones they were able to give us the most special times left with our Father. At times I think their job becomes such a hectic routine, that they forget they are human. And dealing with humans at the same time. I know it is difficult to share comforting words or acts of kindness when found in such a difficult situation. But, sometimes little acts such as you mentioned are worth a million words. And it makes a lasting impression. Not only to the family, but those around who at times think there is no more KINDNESS left in the World. Thank You for opening my eyes and others, that there is still GOOD in this BEAUTIFUL WORLD OF OURS!!!!!
It's a very tragic situation, but not uncommon. I dated a real nice guy for some time. While we dated he mentioned suicide to me. Never in a million years did I think he would follow through on this. It was like 8 yrs. after we dated, that I found out he had taken his life. It was one of the worst times in my life. I often found myself blaming myself for not sharing this with his family. It has been almost 16yrs. and I still find myself questioning myself about this. The way I deal with his passing is on his Birthday, Anniversary Date and other Special Events; I make it a point to visit his grave. I have accepted that he made the choice to take his life not me. I often pray for his soul, and his family. Because I know that no matter how much time passes it never gets easier. And to actually lose a loved one to suicide has to be that much harder. So, please just reassure your friend it's not her fault. And, although she might carry this burden for a long time. Have her seek professional help in dealing with this. And, having :redpinkhe loving friends around her will make it easier for her to cope. Thanks, And GOD Bless Her and You for being such a WONDERFUL FRIEND!redbeathe
I bet if insurances do pull out it would make a world of a difference. This hospital had already been in the hot seat previously for inattentiveness to patients. There was another case in which a pregnant young lady went in for cramping. She was sent home. She returned with hemorrahaging. She had a miscarriage the following day. This hospital had been cited quite a few times. And, nothing had been done. Not until this incident occured. Now, someone is taking notice. But, do we have to wait until someone dies before hospitals and staffs are held accountable for their actions?
I'm sorry, but I've been following this story. There might be patients that exaggerate their pains & sufferings to get seen quicker. But, this lady had been to the hospital three times, and each time was told nothing was wrong. Now, I know at times nursing staffs are overwhelmed and tired. But, isn't this the profession we chose. I was in the ER for loss of feeling due to a car rear ending me. At the same time a lady walked in with chest pains. She was asked to sit down and wait her turn. This lady had just had bypass surgery. Are patients not asked to return if they experience some symptoms caused by surgery or other ailments. So, why if they are complaining of related symptoms are they told to wait. Most of the time patients don't go to the hospital for unnecessay reasons. I attended a nursing graduation recently, and a young lady read why a nurse was put on this Earth for. It stated that GOD sent nurses as ANGELS to look over the sick and weak who are unable to care for themselves. I believe that is so true. I'm taking this to heart. I am getting ready to start my nursing program. And, for a moment there I was about to drop out, because of an incident, that occured while my Father was in the MICU. Some, unprofessional nurses were unwilling to help him move, because he was big in size. Now, I'm a big person too, but that doesn't make us unhuman. We get into this profession to care for sick people if that is not the case. Then, some most make an overview of their selected choice and move on. It is better to move on, than to let another situation like the one with the woman dying. When, one no longer feels the want or need to help others....please move on to another profession!!! We are here to take care of people not kill them!:angryfire
