if i could shadow again i would try and shadow in the law enforcement field again but maybe more into the dispatcher side. the reason i would want to go into the dispatcher side is because they say they are always doing something and always busy.

2. Where was your shadow?
Be specific. My shadow was at Butler CAT located at 3201 N Louise Ave, Sioux Falls, SD 57107.
3. Whom did you shadow?
I shadowed a certified technician by the name of Colt Hawkins.

5. What was the WORST part of your shadow?

6. Are you still considering this career field? Why or why not?
No, I did some follow up research on this job and it does not pay well enough to go to school and be in this profession. Also the tools are outrageously expensive and you have to buy your own.
7. I would do the medical field, I find it very interesting and I'm looking to become a nurse since the program is 4 years and they get paid pretty well.

When there wasn’t anyone in the room he didn’t really talk much so there was a lot of sitting around watching or just listening.
6. Are you still considering this career field? Why or why not?
Probably not but something close, just mostly because the pay is very low for how much school is required.
7. If you were to shadow again, what career field would it be in?
An Athletic trainer just doesn’t seem like the right fit for me, but maybe something more along the lines of a Physical Therapist might be more suited for me.

2. Where was your shadow? Avera McKennan Hospital in Sioux Falls, SD
3. Whom did you shadow? Brittney Nyenhuis
4. What was the BEST part of your shadow? I got to learn a lot about what RN's do during the day.

5. What was the WORST part of your shadow? We did have to do some paper work. There was a guy that had an accident and we had to clean it up and where a special suit that was as thin as paper, but it was to protect our clothes for other patients.
6. Are you still considering this career field? Yes. Absolutely
7. If you were to shadow again, what career field would it be in? I would still do an RN, but maybe one in an office like at my doctors office, or a different part of the hospital

1. My shadow was on Thursday December 6 from 8:30am to 12pm.
2.My shadow was at the Avera McKennan.
3.I shadowed a physical therapist named Erica Sabers.
4.The best part of my shadow was being able to help they person I was shadowing with simple tasks. Also being able to show the things I have learned about the body and how it works through either school, or training for football. It was cool to relate to my shadower and also apply things that I have learned to her everyday job.
5.The worse thing was waiting for her to study her patients history because that took lots of time. On the other hand, it is part of the job and I learn lots of things during those periods.
6. Yes, in fact I think this shadow help me lead toward being a PT and not a PA. I like this field because it is active, never the same, and you are caring for people and talking to people.
7.I would shadow a PA to see if I would like that more.
