A typical day was coming in starting out with classwork. Discussing homework. Doing classwork. Learning different things regarding the healthcare field. How to communicate professionally to resolve problems. The proper way to take vital signs and draw blood. The hardest part of the training was drawing blood until I actually got it!. The most enjoyable part about the class was everything. It is so much to learn about the body.
