I learned about disease process, medication, diagnostic tests, mental illness,public health,preventive care,health education and more. I spent time in different health care facilities, directing and interacting with other health care personnel.I have experience interacting with people in times of crisis, vulnerability, anxiety, etc..Even without a license or professional clinical practice, the kind of knowledge, personal experience and having a Bachelor’s degree hopefully could open doors for me in this industry. Personal Experience : While I’m still in College year 2001-2005 i took care of my grandmother who has a heart problem and Alzheimer. I stay with her after school and during weekends. i attend to all her needs including but not limited to feeding, bathing, and giving meds. Its a fulfillment for me seeing my grandma making her life easier for her everyday from the time she wakes up until she goes to sleep. I have 2 kids.One is 8 and the other is 2 years old. i took care of them from birth.
