STORIES

Are you a planner, or do you fly by

the seat of your pants? As much as I like things to work out exactly how I’ve played them out in my mind, experience has taught me better. There is a saying that goes something like this: “It’s not a matter of what happens to you. It’s how you react to it.” Poet Carl Sandberg articulates this further: “Nearly all the best things that came to me in life have been unexpected, unplanned by me.” Nursing school was on the horizon for Melissa Amavisca, as it is her goal to be a traveling nurse. However, her Plan B has successfully charted her career in the healthcare field. Her end goal is still the same, but Melissa is thriving — and saving lives in the ER — along the way. She might look familiar to you as she has been featured in various CCPE commercials and videos as well as returned to our classrooms to connect with other healthcare students. Melissa is truly an inspiration. Learn more about this incredible woman on Page 14. What’s meant for you might not always be so obvious. I am a proponent of education and lifelong learning. Knowledge is a long-term gift – whether it’s a 2-year degree, a bachelor’s degree, MBA, Ph.D., a professional certificate from continuing education – or a combination of them all! Weigh your options and forge your path. If it doesn’t work out the way you intended, that’s OK – keep going. That’s why so many options for education and career advancement exis. There are no limits on how successful you can truly be.

Sometimes, “Plan B” ends up being the best option. For Melissa Amavisca,

her contingency plan put her on an alternate path to the same destination. The Harrison High School graduate knew from an early age she wanted to enter the healthcare field. “I’ve always had a passion for people and helping others,” Amavisca said. “I always wanted to become a nurse.” After graduating high school, she took the conventional route and enrolled at KSU and began working on her undergraduate core studies. The original plan was to enter KSU’s renowned WellStar School of Nursing. However, after several years of applying to no avail, Amavisca began to explore other options. Upon receiving our Course Catalog magazine, she attended one of our Open House events to learn more about the continuing education route. “I was interested in the CNA (Certified Nursing Assistant) program at first because I wanted to work in a nursing home to gain some experience,” she said. “I took the CNA program with no intent of taking anything else.”

These classes are a stepping stone to entering the healthcare field. I’ve discovered that companies really appreciate the KSU logo on your certificate.

JANUARY - MARCH 2017 // 470-578-6765 // ccpe.kennesaw.edu/online

What happened next was not part of Amavisca’s plan. “I fell in love with KSU’s College of Continuing and Professional Education (CCPE) and the staff here,” she said. "I came back and took Phlebotomy Technician and EKG Technician.” Her drive and determination didn’t stop there. After completing each certificate training course, Amavisca successfully passed the state and national exams for each program. Additionally, she acquired a CPCT (Certified Patient Care Technician) certification to boost her résumé. As a result of the skills and knowledge she learned through her coursework, Amavisca landed a job as a phlebotomist at a local blood lab after a classmate alerted her of it. She later was promoted to office manager before the lab shut down. A few days after losing her job, Amavisca received a phone call from WellStar Paulding Hospital in Hiram and was hired as an emergency department technician. She says she can do everything a nurse can except medicate patients. “[Working in the emergency room], we touch patients more than anybody,” she said.” We are the eyes and ears of the floor.” Amavisca said working in the ER has been an eye-opening experience in that you realize how many sick people are in need of care. She lists her favorite parts of the job as getting to see people get better. Amavisca also appreciates the camaraderie of the close, family-oriented staff and she thrives in the chaos and unpredictability of the ER environment. Amavisca is planning to go back to school to receive an associate’s degree in nursing or surgical technology. She said, “I eventually want to be a traveling nurse.” Forever grateful of her CCPE education, Amavisca said the real-world, hands-on training was the most valuable aspect of the programs. “These classes are a stepping stone to entering the healthcare field,” she said.” I’ve discovered that companies really appreciate the KSU logo on your certificate.”

QUALITY TRAINING CULTIVATES A PERSONAL TOUCH IN THE FIELD

A desire to help others in need

is what Rocio Colon and Mary Groover have in common. Both women, desiring a career in healthcare, were excited to learn about the CNA program in our catalog, “The Course.” After reading the description, they both knew it was the right fit for them. The program aligned with Rocio's personal schedule and she knew the reputation of KSU as an institution of excellence in education. “I have always wanted to study nursing and now that I had the opportunity to do it. I registered and completed the course. It was my dream vocation since I like to help and take care of people,” Rocio said. “From the first day I was very pleased and impressed with the knowledge and professionalism that each teacher had and with the enthusiasm and dedication that each taught every subject and skill with.” The combination of experienced instructors and being taught in a classroom with all the equipment needed to practice every skill was helpful. “The teachers also were very patient while explaining the concepts and skills and took extra time to explain details that were not too clear to me, due to many new concepts that I have not normally used or were aware of,” Rocio said. She also found the videos played during class were helpful in visualizing the skills they were reading about. For both, the hands-on experience added a lot to the program. The clinical training was Rocio's favorite part while Mary liked the CPR/ First Aid Training. Rocio said, “It allowed me to perform the skills I learned with people that had real needs and the personal touch was incredible.” Mary enjoyed meeting the variety of people in her class and was able to learn more about taking care of others, especially the elderly. This hit home for

her, knowing that one day her parents may need that assistance. “It feels rewarding to help others without them needing to leave the comfort of their homes,” she said. Mary is working as a CNA for Faith Medical Services based out of College Park but works with clients on the north side of Atlanta. She helps with the activities of daily living such as housekeeping, bill paying, doctor appointments, general activities and cooking meals. She is also a companion to people whose families can’t afford to miss work to take care or spend time with their loved ones. “The CNA program has made me even more compassionate towards the mentally challenged and the elderly,” she said. “I feel like I have a more purposeful job now.” After taking this course to reassure her interest, Mary is planning on applying to Clayton State in January to further her career in nursing. Rocio was able to reflect on her motivations for enrolling: “While taking this course I realized that my personal reason for taking care of others is bigger than what I thought. It gives me great happiness to be able to give relief to those in real need, bring compassion and see their faces of compliance and to know that their needs have been taken care of.” She wants to use the knowledge and skills the course taught her to start taking care of those less fortunate and in need of care. Both graduates advise students to take the course to help direct them in the healthcare profession. Rocio specifically suggests going to our Open House and gathering as much information as possible. “Even if you don’t see yourself as a long-term CNA, the knowledge from the coursework and clinical will help you achieve your goals,” Mary said.

TESOL GRADUATE PREPARES FOR NEXT CHAPTER

Morgan Attaway, TESOL graduate, spent two years teaching in Japan. She returned to the U.S. to obtain her master’s degree in TESOL and spent some time reflecting on her experience.

My return to the U.S. will

mark two years of living, teaching, and growing in the “Land of the Rising Sun.” Looking back, I can barely recognize the person I was when I first arrived. I must admit that when I first found out that I had been accepted to the Japanese Exchange and Teaching program, I was terrified that I was making a huge mistake and getting in over my head. Little did I know at the time that it would become one of the best decisions I have ever made. The changes I have undergone and confidence I have gained are only the tip of a vast iceberg of experiences that sum up my life here. By working abroad, I have gained a level of confidence in myself and my abilities that I never achieved before. I learned how to adapt to a new culture, a new education system, and a new life. For me, this encompassed everything from learning Japanese, to having my first surgery, to losing loved ones back home, to keeping warm in freezing temperatures when there is no insulation in the buildings and no central heating (which is a lot harder than it sounds when you’re a Georgia girl like me). However cliché it may sound, I know now that no matter what ups and downs may come my way, I am able to handle them all. On the other side of that coin, however, are all the wonderful experiences that change your life forever. Japan is a delightful blend of old and new, filled to the brim with cherry blossoms, anime, temples, robots and sushi. While the virtues of Japan seem endless, I must say that I will miss the people here the most. By living in a small coastal town, I have had the chance to become a part of a community where there are no strangers. I have met people with a vast array of backgrounds and worldviews and learned so much more about the world around me. While these past two years have been amazing, it is time to move on to the next adventure. For me, that 26

next step is graduate school to obtain my Master’s degree in TESOL. Ultimately, I hope to manage and facilitate ESL programs at the university level and work as an English Language Fellow or Specialist for the U.S. State Department. For those considering the idea of teaching TESOL, or are already ESL educators and are contemplating a move overseas, get ready for a path unlike any other. Students are diverse and will come to your classroom with a story of their own. You will come home from work with stories and points of view that most people will never encounter in their lifetime let alone on a daily basis. Personally, I can’t envision myself doing anything else. Whatever may come, I can never express how thankful I am for having had the opportunity to live and teach abroad and to grow as an educator and as a person. Working as a TESOL instructor has allowed me to meet people, visit places, and experience moments that I never would have otherwise.
