  2. I wanted to be able to teach my students to be more understanding and empathetic with the aging process once we made it into our clinical rotation at the local nursing home. I wanted them to understand why the residents moved so slowly and I wanted them to learn to be patient and kind while working with them.

    It is so important to get these kids to understand the pains and aches that our elderly generation feel every day, so that they can provide better care for our aging population.
