Many will be traveling home and enjoying family for the Thanksgiving Season.  But now, we will barely have time to give thanks and finish dessert before rushing to shop for the best Christmas deals.


With the busy schedules, most people keep, perhaps there is something to be said for setting aside this day to give thanks and relax.


Here are a few ways to give thanks and celebrate Thanksgiving:


  • Find an organization where you can feed or help the homeless, then head home to start cooking and watch the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade.
  • During your Thanksgiving dinner, ask each person to share a line of gratitude for each person seated at the table.
  • Watch A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving together as a family.
  • Use this time to sit down as a family and establish a new holiday tradition.
  • Write thank you notes to people who have made a difference in your life.
  • Set out a jigsaw puzzle for everybody to work on throughout the weekend.
  • Post an “I Am Thankful For…” list on the refrigerator and ask everybody to contribute to it. Write each item from the list on colorful strips of paper. Let someone read the list at Thanksgiving dinner.


Some may think these are the “old-fashioned” ways of celebrating Thanksgiving, but it’s truly a special day for families and friends.

Happy Thanksgiving from the Staff of New Hope Medical Training!  We are truly thankful for all the students who entrusted us to help start their career in the Health Care Field.

With a little effort and hard work, graduating without student loan debt is possible! It may make life a little more complicated at times, but for many people, that can be a much better choice than getting stuck with debt for decades. Here are 5 ways to help pay for tuition:

1. Have Your Employer Subsidize Your Education

There are plenty of employers who will pay several thousand dollars of your education per year, up to a full-tuition reimbursement. This is not limited to full-time work employees. Many employers also offer tuition reimbursement programs to part-time employees especially major hospitals.


2. Work at the College

Many colleges offer their employees substantial tuition discounts.  Many schools offer tuition discounts to both their full-time and part-time employees, so if you are fortunate enough to live near a school with such a policy, you could work part-time earning a degree and likely graduate debt-free.


3. Have a Parent Work at the College

In addition to the employee, colleges generally offer direct relatives of employees tuition discounts. If your parent works at a college, much of your tuition will be waived. 


4. Take More Credits Per Term

If you are paying full-time tuition, most colleges do not differentiate between 12 credits and 21 credits. So why take 12 credits and pay the same as 21.  Taking more credits can reduce your expense tremendously! 


5. Work in Public Service

If you already have student loans, most of us do,  working at a non-profit agency can help you pay for college as well.  Consider giving back to your community and your country, working in a public service capacity may merit loan forgiveness due to the College Cost Reduction and Access Act of 2007.

The more you know and do before you attend school, the easier it will be to reduce the need for student loans or avoid them altogether. 

Good luck!

To succeed, you have to prepare. Success is a long-term process, not something that you can achieve within a few days. As you know, success will not come to you automatically. If you want success to happen to you, you must do something to become the reason for success to come. Below are 5 tips on how to prepare to become successful.

#1. Get Organized. Making a plan for what you're going to do and when you're going to do it will make sure you're always ahead of the curve - literally. 

#2. Sleep. Don't underestimate the importance of those eight hours of zzz's every night! Getting a good night's rest will sharpen your focus and improve your working memory.

#3. Set a schedule. Do you work better right after school or after you've eaten dinner? Are you more productive in 90-minute blocks or half-hour spurts? Find a schedule that works for you, and stick to it. 

#4. Manage your study space. Find a place that will maximize your productivity. Look for places away from the television and other distractions. Whether it's your local library or just the desk in your bedroom, set aside a study space that you'll want to spend time in. 

#5. Find a study group. Sitting down with a group of people who are learning the same things as you is a great way to go over confusing class material or prepare for a big test. You can quiz each other, reteach material, and make sure that everyone is on the same page. After all, teaching someone else is the best way to learn. 

Bonus Tip: Cultivate a good relationship with your instructor. Instructors are a student’s best secret weapon. They can spend the extra time to help you with your course when needed. They can divulge professional information that reveals ways to enter the work field. Lastly, they can provide a good reference for you for the future.

Follow the tips you have learned above and apply them to your life to become a successful student.

A certified nursing assistant or CNA is one of the most important roles in health care. Many people choose to pursue an education as a CNA because they are unsure of what they want to do in the field of healthcare. In doing so, they do not have to go through the time and expense required to obtain a degree only to find out later that the field may not be what they really want. Here are 5 reasons why becoming a CNA before working in health care is beneficial.


#1. You will know if health care is for you before investing your time and money in a health care degree. Being a CNA is a great an inexpensive way to become familiar with the health care world and decide do I like patient care, can I handle blood, can I handle death, also you will get a chance to see how rewarding health care can be as well.

#2. Being a CNA is a prerequisite or is highly favored when applying to an LPN, RN or physician assistant program. As a CNA, it may be easier to gain access to other nursing programs, in particular, accelerated ones. As you can demonstrate that you have working experience in the field, it will be more likely for you to be accepted to these programs.

#3. Being a CNA will help you get your foot in the door. Most CNAs work as an RN in the same hospital, unit, or nursing home. As a CNA, you will be able to develop relationships with other nurses who have higher qualifications. These are invaluable network connections for your own career later on in life.

#4. As a CNA you'll have a flexible work schedule while in school. CNAs have very flexible jobs since people need care 24/7. You basically have an opportunity to set a schedule as you like it. First, Second, or Third shift, part-time, or PRN.

#5. Experience, Experience, Experience! You need the experience to put on your resume and to be better equipped when pursuing higher-level health care degrees. By being a CNA, you can experience the various medical fields that exist, which is a great way to choose what sort of specialization you would like to obtain if you ever decide to study on.
