Sonya was a stay at home mom who had dropped out of school in the third grade. Robert was a Baptist minister and the two got married at the ripe age of 13. At first, Robert was a wonderful husband and showered his wife with gifts and attention but this eventually faded and the happy couple divorced Ben grew up in inner-city Detroit with his mom and older brother, Curtis, and his family was not the wealthiest either.

My life has been filled with various situations that have helped me choose this career. The main influence is my mother; she is a nurse at Mary Immaculate Hospital.
I feel with my schooling I would be able to understand my sons illness more which would allow me to provide him the help that he needs. Ten years ago I was a certified nursing assistant and liked working in health care but
I worked with mixing and processing chemicals, a repetitive and rote role that was worlds away from the life I grew accustomed to in Boston. I rose at 7 am every day, even on some weekends, and left at 5 pm. The work was grueling, particularly because it involved no thought or intellectual output, and I soon discovered that my father assigned me to this role as punishment for my less-than-stellar performance at BU. Furthermore, after weeks on the job, I learned that my father would not simply award me with a good job because I was his son, particularly after a mediocre academic year in University. This continued performance would only earn a position as a factory worker, and nothing
I was let go by my bank because I was the youngest, without family and paid too well for someone without a degree. There it was again. No education no job.

I gained employment with Kaplan College, a occupational school that offers certifications in healthcare and various Associate Degrees.

Statistics from the Commerce Department prove, “The savings rate for Americans is the lowest it has been in 73 years” (Wallechinsky, para 10). Saving money is nearly impossible, let alone paying monthly bills. Also, benefits from jobs such as healthcare and bonuses are decreasing along with businesses being stricter about missing work. When Richard Oden was not able to return to work fast enough after getting a major surgery, unfortunately, “to help support his family, Oden had to dip into his 401(k) fund, paying a penalty for premature withdrawal” (Wallechinsky, para 8).

One that would ensure employers supported by clinicians were placed at the heart of the decision-making process, with the opportunity to design the shape of their workforce and the way in which they develop the people they employ. The NHS in England is one of the best healthcare systems in the world and that is down to the dedication of the workforce. However, while the NHS currently delivers excellent care, in some areas outcomes for patients still lag behind the top countries in the international league. As we strive to improve the NHS to deliver world-class health outcomes for patients, we need also to improve the way we develop the healthcare and public health workforce. The people who work in health services, whatever the sector, need to be well supported to attain the right professional and clinical skills, as well as providing care with compassion, kindness, and respect for people.
Why I chose to become a Physical Therapist Assistant Raquel Herrera Dade Medical College Introduction to Physical Therapy Assistant 11/28/14 Professor Libia Sabes When choosing a profession, I was looking for options that would allow me to make a difference in someones life while having the opportunity to have a flexible, balanced life myself. Also a field that I would find interest in and enjoy. I am looking for a rewarding career in a struggling job market and down economy and figured that becoming a physical therapist assistant could be the answer.
