Back in School

Well I’m back in school again! I am spending my next [six now] Saturday’s up in Cambridge learning how to be a Nursing Assistant/Home Health Aide. As I’m learning I am very intrigued by the Home Health Aide – so as of now I think I will look into that as my stepping stone after the marathon! I’ve heard they can make decent pay. The home health aide Home health and personal care aides help people who are disabled, chronically ill, or cognitively impaired, including children. They also help older adults who may need assistance. They help with activities such as bathing and dressing, and they provide services such as light housekeeping.(Doing the dishes) Check the client’s vital signs under the direction of a nurse or other healthcare practitioner. I would be working solo at someone’s house – so its an interesting prospect that usually jives with a typical “9 to 5” schedule. The other avenue I’d like to seek into is working at a hospital as a Nursing Assistant. I’d have to find a day shift which is VERY HARD to come by, and usually they want experience! So without taking a drastic pay cut (aka working in a nursing home) – I think the HHA sounds like a viable option. I will keep you all up to date on what’s happening with that. Plans for the week: Tuesday K has gymnastics! She just mastered her Monkey Flip last week! (basically a somersault on the rings) Thursday watch A, G & M’s dance recital! Friday I’m running in a 5K directly before the Manitou Days parade – then I will watch the parade! Saturday I have class all day, and then I believe we are going to the Drive In movie theatre! Sunday The Fathers Day Croquet Invitational at my parents! (BBQ too!)
