Fortunately there are many television shows on television which are focused on doctors and nurses. Some of these programs are very realistic and they give an accurate view about medicine and hospitals. An intelligent female teacher knew that her upper level pupils were smart enough to learn from one of these job projects which were readily available.
Each student was able to pick a career of their choice and then they would get to job shadow the manager who worked within that job field. Several of these pupils wanted to do hospital work and therefore they were told to report to the local Medical Center on Monday morning. Once they arrived at this place their instructor told them that each of them would be able to work with someone from pediatrics, oncology and cardiology.
All of these were great assignments which would lead to a good future job for everyone involved. Every staff member at this medical place tried to make the young people feel very welcome in every way possible. The young female who worked with oncology became very involved with her older female patients since they were very needy and wanted human company throughout the day. She took the time to comb the women's hair and to recite poetry to them before bedtime.
When one of them passed away she became very upset and could not properly perform her duties for the rest of the day. A fellow worker gave her great information about terminally ill patients and how to let go of them once they have left this world. Eventually she became stronger and was able to complete the course without any further tragedies or interruptions.
On the other hand the pediatrics unit was filled with laughter and joy throughout the day and night. All of the children located in this unit were only there temporarily and would soon be discharged. Eric was assigned to this location and he truly liked working with everyone within this department. He had decided right then that this was truly the place that he wished to be after graduation.
The other female student found cardiology to be a very interesting subject and she was very grateful to work with such fine doctors. She always felt that the human body was indeed fascinating in every possible way. This young woman learned that old and young people can suffer from all types of heart ailments. Heart disease had always been a major problem in her family and this program helped to educate her on this particular issue.
After everyone had finished this mentoring program the instructor told them all to write a report on their experience. She was pleased to find out that each student had something unique to say about this important project. Each and every one of them also wanted to job shadow other businesses which would help with their future goals.
