During the lectures on 60 hours I have learned that there are many important things to know not just being responsible for daily care of patients residents some of whom can be extremely ill, confused and can be very stressful. I should also know about visual awareness like for example to be watchful of potential hazards using common sense, and removing hazards immediately before an injury can happen. In our typical day the training and lectures are easy except sometimes during the question in the exams are so tricky. Since we need to finish the 40 hour requirement for training in the rehabilitation facility I have realized that to work to this profession I need to be more emotionally, physically and mentally very strong. Although, I have many experiences in real life that are related to this profession but still Nursing Assistant is not easy task but there are many things the most I like when working at elderly people I get to know them very well, it's like I have 10 to 20 sets of grandparents. I will become their friend and getting close and started trusting me and look at me as if I were part of there family. The Best part of my training i have learned despite the tough experience by far is knowing at the end of the day I made a difference is someones life.

Good combination of classroom, and hands on. Instructor was very helpful. Knew exactly what he was teaching about and prepared us for state testing.
