Well, today the students are bringing closure to the course, beginning the morning with the final written exam, or lovingly referred to as a celebration of their knowledge. All passed and were able to take the practical exam on Saturday. It was a full day event with all successfully completing their course and on their way to full State certification after taking the appropriate test, and National Registry if desired. It was hard to believe that the majority of the same people who only 3 weeks earlier entered the classroom with little to no experience now leave knowing with confidence they have the skills to assess and treat those they find in need of those skills. To all of you who worked so hard and gave so much of yourselves to the class and to each other, we as instructors say thank you and stay safe out there.
Thanks and best of luck to you- Deane Hodde
