Students of the Patient Centered Care course pose for a picture at Kenton Nursing and Rehab.
Before the Kenton High School winter break, the students of Mrs. Deb Purcell’s Patient Centered Care class spent the week at Kenton Nursing and Rehab, a local long-term care facility. This class is offered through Ohio Hi-Point at the Kenton City Schools Northwood satellite facility. The students, who are pursuing their State Tested Nurse’s Aide (STNA) license, completed early experience in the industry. The students shadowed current STNA’s at the facility and learned what they do on a daily basis.
The students began their day feeding the residents breakfast. They then helped the staff get the patients bathed and make their beds. The students were also responsible for responding to call lights, feeding the residents their lunch, ensuring they drank enough liquids, as well as visiting with and keeping the resident’s company.
This experience was a “practice run” for the STNA test that the students will be taking this coming Saturday. The exam requires the students to perform 5 tasks in 35 minutes in front of a state examiner, as well as a written test.
The experience wasn’t just in preparation for the upcoming exam, but it provided an opportunity for the students to be introduced to the real world healthcare setting. Cheryl Collins said that “[The experience] was really helpful for me, but it made me realize that I don’t want to work in a nursing home.” Collins would still like to become a nurse. Harley Crisp, who entered this year pursuing a nursing degree, has been changed by this experience. “It gave me the idea of whether or not I wanted to be a nurse,” Crisp said. After this real-world experience, she discovered she didn’t want to be a nurse, but instead pursue a different occupation in the healthcare field. This shadowing experience exhilarating for Jenna Rodenberger who said: “It excited me for to begin my career in the healthcare industry.”
During the second semester, these students will have the opportunity to have an internship with various health organizations throughout the community, to gain more experience and knowledge in the industry.
