Moving Along, Keep your eye on the prize

Hello Friends,

I am trying to make a point to keep up with posting. As it will be interesting information for me to refer back to and hopefully it will be easier for visitors to follow me.

I am in my fourth week of my second term in grad school. As I have mentioned in previous posts that means I have a ton of work to do. I am studying exceptionally enriching material that I will hold in my Child Life tool kit for sure. But nonetheless, I am quite swamped.

I am trying to finish applications for internship as well. In addition I have some great news… I got into a Summer Child Life Practicum-YAY!!!  This will definitely be a great stepping stone to prepare me for when I do my internship. Not to mention it is something many hospital internship programs require and or prefer. So it is definitely a good thing to do.

I am so grateful, relieved, and excited to continue moving along my path.

*Keep on, Keeping on

 

 

What a Journey!

Hello all,

Well last weekend I had my graduation ceremony in Manchester, New Hampshire! I am an official graduate, (although I have had my diploma since October 2014-just saying). Nonetheless it was a special occasion and a huge accomplishment that I am so happy I experienced!

Now as some of you may or may not know where I left off with my Child Life path, it is time for an update. It turns out I did not get an internship for the summer program.  I knew it would be very competitive and most of the hospitals only had 1 slot with several applicants.

I accomplished all-said requirements of the Child Life Council before applying to internships, including the child life course taught by a Certified Specialist. With those all fulfilled, I attempted to, I suppose cut corners, skip getting the masters and take a chance on getting an internship without it.

However, as time had gone by more internship programs were preferring the students who have their masters.  Furthermore, the Child Life Council is going to be requiring a masters in a few years.

As I wasn’t having luck of acceptance into an internship program I decided I wanted and needed to develop more of a foundation in Child Life that would prepare me for the internship and on the job. With that, I decided to apply to graduate school!

I just got accepted into Grad school and I will be getting my masters in Child Life!

I cannot wait to continue the next chapter of my journey!
