The gracious director of Evergreen Valley College’s Certified Nurse Assistant and Home Health Aide Program Dr. Elaine Kafle gave Ready2Nurse founder Amy Wang and I the opportunity to present to her students last week. Amy has been a preceptor for Stanford’s Physician Assistant program for the past 11 years, and I currently co-instruct a graduate level school psychology course at California State University, East Bay. We truly value pursuing education and having a mindset of a lifelong learner. Speaking about our past experiences and giving advice about caring for each individual as a person and not a task to be checked off was greatly rewarding in itself. We were blown away by the kindness and gratitude from Dr. Kafle and her students. They sent us a lovely thank you card that was really affirming. In our line of home health work, we strive to support patients and create positive moments with them. Empathy and compassion are vital to be successful in building rapport with others and providing exceptional care. We hope to continue to influence the next generation of caregivers to carry the same principals in their work.
