Getting to Practice the Skills Learned in Class

November is often a time when people share stories of gratitude and we think that’s great! For the next month the P.S. Blog will feature several Pearson Campus Ambassadors who are grateful for a variety of things: from family and friends to opportunities at their college. What are you grateful for?


1.Alex KaminskiAlex Kaminski is a nursing major at Neumann University in Aston, Pennsylvania. Her career goal is to be a travel nurse one day. Currently, her favorite class is American Sign Language. Her favorite holiday food is mashed potatoes. Here is what she’s grateful for:

One thing I am grateful for is my opportunity this year to start my clinical experience. It is such a gratifying experience to actually practice the skills I was trained to perform. It is an even better experience when you can help the patient and make them feel better. So many patients tell me how thankful they are because I sit and talk with them. It is a great feeling to have such an impact on someone’s life and it makes all of the hard studying and long days worthwhile! I hope that every student will eventually receive this awesome experience of showing off the skills they’ve worked so hard to learn and master! I also want to add that I am thankful for having my family to support me through school. Without them I am not sure how I would have made it to my junior year.
