I was responsible for...
Punctuality, Patient care, Monitor blood pressure, both at rest and during exercise. Writing their next session plan and leading them through it, Charting all information during session,and Hooking patients up to the heart monitors.

I accomplished...
I became much more confident in exercise prescriptions and my blood pressures

I learned...
Working with these people has taught me that you can be on death's door and you can still come back, better than ever.

Advice for others...
Realistically, if you are wanting to get into the field for your career, be ready to continue your schooling. The odds of you getting into this as just an exercise specialist are very slim. So be thinking about nursing school or grad school in your future.
