Forty years in the medical field has given me ample opportunity to test as well as teach. My work experience has allowed me to train and teach other employees and students not only in nursing but respiratory therapy as well. I have also been a nurse evaluator for the National Association that tests nurses aides. My understanding about the formatting and weight of the varied parts of these exams is very helpful when helping a student prepare for such a comprehensive exam. Special attention is given to the wording as well as the vocabulary of each question on. Also areas of weakness are identified when making a plan to get started. Organization is a key factor when preparing for a test such as the NCLEX.
I am a Registered Nurse, as well as a Registered Respiratory Therapist. I have been in the medical field for over 40 years. At present I am tutoring a nursing student from Marymount University helping her get ready for her HESI exam as well as the NCLEX. Pharmacology is a part of nursing and I have been giving medications for 40 plus years.
Course work for the pharmacy technician course is not as advanced as the pharmacology course work for pharmacology in nursing.
For these reasons I feel that I am qualified to tutor a pharmacology technician student.
I have used public speaking in many different venues. I taught a course for the Air Force Transitional Assistance Program for 1.5 years on professional dressing. Also, I gave presentations as a Respiratory Therapist on how to use equipment.
Public speaking seems to be accompanied by a natural fear of standing up in front of a group and presenting information. Why is that? A couple of good reasons are that we spend most of our educational life listening to others and then being tested on how much we have absorbed by answering questions on a computer or on paper. It is not until we get older that we are tasked by speaking in front of a group.
Teaching is one of the best ways to enhance your ability to successfully demonstrate ones ability to connect with a group of people. My experience in and out of the medical field has offered me many such challenges. Taking speech in college was only a first step. Teaching employees, and medical students about responsibilities on the job as well as how to do procedures has been very helpful. Organizing ideas, designing effective visual aids and clarifying key points backed up either by example or a story usually makes the audience feel comfortable with the subject matter. Having the ability to bring energy to your topic is also another way to do this.
For a number of years I also taught professional dressing and image classes for the Transition Assistance program for the US Air Force. Classes consisted of an hour long presentation that included visual aids, color analysis, and a short slide presentation and how to build a core wardrobe from your existing closet. Personal consultations were also available to teach individuals how to dress and how to research companies and their particular dress culture for an upcoming interview. Become familiar not only with your subject matter but with your audience.
Questions are always welcome as well as audience critiques. Feedback is a very important part of public speaking. Practicing rather than memorizing and diction play a vital role when presenting. These are just a few highlights for good public speaking.
I have been sewing for 40 years. I own my own machine and can show others how to match fabrics, use machine attachments, and follow patterns.
Beginning sewing is a great skill to have. This course consists of basic skills needed to complete a garment or craft. How to follow pattern instructions, lay out and cut a pattern and to make adjustments for proper fit. Also covers necessary materials for garment construction as well as fabric choices for particular garment or craft One of the most important skills will be understanding the different parts of a sewing machine and its operation. Last but not least beginning sewing reinforces ones math ability. It is a skill that will last a lifetime.
