Kyle Bell’s thoughts:

“Even though I do not have any relatives in the nursing field, I became interested at an early age in hospitals and healing within the health care field. My first day at the Waterford Health Campus was pleasant because the staff was so nice and helpful. I received a tour, and then helped some residents with feeding. Among my duties now are: assisting the residents with daily living skills, assistive feeding, wheelchair transport and checking vital signs. At the Kokomo Area Career Center, I took the health care systems class and this Certified Nursing Assistant class, which helped me decide to enroll at Ball State University to become a Registered Nurse. Because of this internship experience at the Waterford Health Campus and my career center classes, I feel I will be better prepared for my college nursing courses.”

Peggy Hostetler’s comments:

“Waterford Health Campus is a great facility for our Kokomo Area Career Center nursing students to learn the required standards. The internship experience and the career center classes help our students decide if the medical field is a good fit for them before they and/or their families make a large investment in college. I believe the health field needs more males, so I think Kyle is making a good career choice. Kyle communicates well with the Waterford residents, performs the required procedures in preparation for the state exam and understands the importance of doing his job in a proper and safe manner. Kyle has grown considerably in assuming responsibility, while increasing his medical knowledge through these experiences. The experience at the Waterford Health Campus definitely has helped Kyle confirm his career choice.”
