Hi Everyone!


 


I want to get into the Healthcare field, as an employee. After spending a year volunteering, figuring out what I want to really do, I now know I definitely want to be an Activities Assistant.

Hi!

My name is Jennifer. I've worked in health care for 10 years, I've been employed at my facility for 3 years. I like to  write, paint, and play guitar. My passion is animal rescue. I have 5 foster cats and 3 rescue dogs. My dogs are named Bear, Ratty, and Piper. I love working with animals and the elderly.  I married my husband 3 years ago on my birthday which is in March. My dream is to have my own rescue one day. 

It's nice to meet you~

Hi Jennifer,

 

What state are you from? Did you have prior organizing/planning experience before becoming an activities worker? I'm finding it difficult to get into the field because every employer seems to want people who has experience in planning/organizing events (even to be an entry-level activities assistant!) How hard can it be?

Hi I'm Missy,

I have been in health care since 97'. I worked as a CNA up until November 2012. I am married with 1 son. I currently work with retired Catholic Missionary Sisters. They are a joy to work with. I love doing activities with them. They are so creative and always appreciative. I also have 1 week left for MEPAP1 and am excited to begin part 2 in the fall. The inspiration from all of the other students is remarkable. I look forward to learning new and exciting techniques in Mepap2.

Hello I am Salita. I just finished MEPAP I and will be starting MEPAPII from tomorrow - (04/07/2015). MEPAP I was a very good experience and very knowledgeable, our instructor Kathy, who is so great.

Thank you

Hi my name is Carly and I'm working as an AD in Bellingham, WA.  They are paying for me to get certified as I learn the job.

I've signed up for and paid for the MEPAP I "go at your own pace" course on activitydirectors.org but I haven't received anything to start the course today.  Is anyone else in this class?  Help??

 

Thanks!

     Thank you for correcting the information that was released. I recently took the test for certification with NAAPCC and it was a very comprehensive and thorough test. It was not a simple easy test to get you certified. You had to know the information in order to complete and pass. I would recommend this avenue to anyone especially if finances are a struggle for MEPAP I & II. I did purchase the book for long-term care seventh edition and without that I would have struggled.

    Celeste is awesome!! Anytime i have a question she gets right back with me and she is very informative. At first I didn't know if i was going to like the new course just for the fact my MEPAP course was the own pace and I work Full time plus have 3 kids. But i am loving it! It is very structured and with due dates I feel like i am holding myself more accountable for completed assignments sooner than later. It has actually been a beneficial change for me.. Thanks so much!!!

    Good Evening I wanted to let you know that I had completed mepap 1 and had only a couple weeks left of mepap 2 so I had looked at path 2 and have taken the activities test and passed so just sending in the application. I wanted to thank you for giving all your time to us even while Kathy was ill. It didn't go unnoticed, you was a great support and helpful at ideas or even different ways of changing thoughts to positive while feeling defeated. Thank You Stacey Passa AP-BC
