It WAS a language elective for a coworker LPN. She was going for her RN and it counted.

You know what, amolucia? My sign language course was a language elective, also went I went for my RN through Larry & Curly Community College!

I took the sign language course in the mid '80's and got into the nursing program in 1988 or thereabouts.

You know, Kitiger, through animation I can do just about anything!

A wonderful unit secretary that I worked with at Wrongway had parents who were hearing impaired from birth. She was so very good at signing, and could read people's slight expressions like a book. I strongly encouraged her to get certified and make good money, but she never did.

This is called being a CODA or child of deaf adults and my friend is one

At that pace, I could go . . . 3 steps . . . possibly 4!

Now, walking, I'm fine. I normally walk a couple miles/day, plus 100 miles/month on my AirDyne bike.

Sorry. We're supposed to be talking about sign language.

At one point, I thought I could learn ASL or Spanish - maybe both - and translate as I got older. (You saw that, didn't you? OLDER, not old.) Alas, it wasn't to be.

My mom worked at a large psychiatric state hospital in the 70s and 80s. She learned a bit of sign language along the way. I still remember her teaching me the signs for "coffee" and "smoke"- two essential forms of patient care back then!
