It was a pilot program and so we were actively involved in shaping the criteria for the next cohort. The teachers were very intellectual and engaging and related content to professional practice through personal experiences and open discussion. Learning was set for all styles including tactile, visual and auditory which helped to nail in the information that we needed for the jobs we were hired to do! AH-T preaches teamwork and support and it can be seen in the work environment.
What I wish was different
I wish that my program hadn't started so late but I understand that the hospitals scatter dates to keep on top of training new classes at regulated intervals
Keep on top of applications and do not overlook opportunities. I turned down some interviews in the west florida area because I thought I would be moving back home and working from there. However, I actually ended up living in West Florida! It was difficult to find a position I felt met my wants and needs because I had let go of some opportunities I didn't think I would be able to take. It is an important decision, really think about what it is that you are looking for and go after it!
