Nursing Student (Former Employee) – Valparaiso, IN – July 9, 2017
As a nursing student I learned how to mask my fear of working with the public and forced myself to speak to patients and families about situations in which I was uncomfortable explaining. I learned to be curious and ask questions regarding understanding disease processes and medication management. I thoroughly enjoyed learning how to assess real people as well as gain a small idea as to what it is like to have to manage your time and work efficiently to keep patients safe and as comfortable as possible.
great experiences, good teachers, fun to learn
Each clinical experience was only about 6 hours long, not long enough to experience a full 12-hr shift.

Undergraduate Teaching Assistant (Current Employee) – Valparaiso, IN – March 4, 2017
Worked as teaching assistant for Electronics I, Electronics II, and Linear Algebra and Matrices. I graded over 40 homework assignments and entered the scores into blackboard while giving feedback on those assignments to help students know where they went wrong in solving problems.
The main thing I learned out of being a teaching assistant was that how to give a good feedback such that students know exactly what they have done wrong in solving problems and so they would be able to correct their mistakes based off the comment provided by me.
The hardest part was that how to give a feedback so students can directly know what they have done wrong and be able to correct their mistakes.
The most enjoyable part was that every time I would grade a homework assignment, I needed to refresh my information about how to solve those problems again which I felt it helped me have a better understanding on how to solve problems in Electronics and Mathematics.
