Helping students understand the power of being a Certified Nurse Aide (CNA). Teaching students the importance of integrity, responsibility, and accountability in regards to providing compassionate, quality and professional care, in both clinicals and at work, and then actually seeing those demonstrated in those settings. When the students realize that anything and everything they do is a reflection of themselves, that is the moment that the integrity, responsibility and accountability 'click' for them. Nice moments. Additionally, teaching students the necessary skills, demeanor, and insight for helping people who are in the hospital, long-term care, etc., and that the exceptional care they provide as CNAs is absolutely essential for the people in those situations.

I would invite Donald Trump to discuss his vision of the future of America, Louis Pasteur, just to talk with him, General James "Mad Dog" Mattis, to discuss with him his ideals for serving our country, and what it was like being the Commandant of the Marine Corps.
