Thomas Nelson Community College
People helping people
Looking back over the years when my mother was an RN at our local hospital, I remember that everywhere we went in our town, we would run into somebody that know of her. People would come up to my mother in public and say thank you for taken care of their mom, dad or family member. Hearing people say that made me fill very proud of her! Now looking back at all of this, I believe it’s my turn to help people that need help. So that’s why I’m going back to school to become a physical therapist and do my part for people in need.
To become a physical therapist, you must have at least thirty hours of volunteer time, two years of college, and a desire to want to help others in need. Now in order get the “feel” of working with people and to see different issues that come into a clinic, this is where you do your volunteer time. With no pay! Also while you’re doing this, two years of college comes into play so that can you learn all the parts of the body, how they work, and be able to treat people with all the techniques that you have learned. And finally, after all the college classes, clinical rotations, text books and teacher help, it’s the love of the patience and wanting to help them that make your job worthwhile. After all, its people helping people!!
