ZOOMING IN

Q: Why are you taking medical terminology?

A: “I really always enjoyed watching those TV shows that are about being in hospitals and saving people’s lives.”

Q: Who motivated you to take the class?

A: “My motivation will always be my mom. She’s been supportive throughout all my decisions and she really never pushed me into doing something I didn’t like, but whenever I told her about the medical field, she told me that I should achieve what I’ve always wanted to do.”

Q: How do you hope the medical class prepares you for your future career?

A: “The medical class I’m currently taking is teaching me medical terms that are used in the field I want to pursue. We will also be doing the basics on learning how to take someone’s blood pressure, and as you further on more into the class you get to start in making decisions on your own [about what] to learn about.”

Q: How are you benefiting from becoming a nurse/doctor?

A: “Helping people is one of main benefits. It makes me look like a better person which I want to become.”

Q: What are the expectations in your medical class?

A: “Turn in your work on time and don’t slack, or else you really won’t get what we’re doing the next day in class.”

Q: What is the most difficult thing in the class and why?

A: “I think the most difficult thing is you know that all classmates are your competition. Everything will be a competition.”

Q: How do you balance this class compared to the others?

A: “It’s the easiest class out of all my classes I currently have because I’m good at memorizing the terms and it’s pretty easy to handle.”
