I belive that overall my progress on the semester was good. This has been the busiest semester of school that I have ever had, that coupled with some other things I have been dealing with outside of school has honestly not made it my best. My grades are good and I feel that I have performed well in clinical situations, but I have struggled to feel connected and to feel like I have put my best foot forward. With that being said I am ready to end this semester so I can have some reset time to get refocused and come into next semester locked in. The best thing I have experienced this semester is being placed in clinical with the football team. It was frustrating at times and I really had to work at it, but the amount of hands on experience I recieved along with the independence in clinical scenarios has benefitted me greatly. As I previously stated, this semester has not been exactly ideal in any sense, so I plan on making the next one of my best. I hope to take many lessons away from this semster and use them to better myself going into my last three semesters.
Each week, the students in our Athletic Training Program are required to post a journal entry. These can be typed our video recordings. Each week we focus on a different topic relating to clinicals, research, EBP, classes, or life in general. We are also graded through our websites, so if you notice any weird notes or things that do not make sense it is probably part of an assignment. Take a minute to check them out!
