    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This is a 15-week course in which I was able to learn about the aspect of hospice. I chose this Avenue for my second fieldwork experience for the fact that I've never worked with the death or dying. 15 weeks of understanding The Core Concepts of Human Services at the end of life experiences. I would recommend choosing a field in which you are unfamiliar with so that you can open your horizons and be able to experience new things with the guidance of a professor and classmates who are striving for the same success.

    Course highlights:

    I learned how to establish professional boundaries as well as learning how to deal with individuals who passed away. I have never work in the industry of hospice or death and dying and this was a reality check for my desires to working in Human Service field. Death is a part of life and understanding what entitles helps prepare for my future working in the social services aspect of humanity. I was able to express myself with my classmates and professor as needed as well as discuss situations with a prominent volunteer coordinator and supervisor.

    Hours per week:

    12+ hours

    Advice for students:

    I would encourage individuals to go outside of their comfort zone and choose a field work experience that teaches them new aspects of the field there and train. Be prepared for 15 weeks of assignments and allow yourself adequate time to make your hours at your location. Participate in the discussions and be detailed in your field work experience Journal as it is the part of this experience that will follow you throughout your career having this journal handy to look back and understand what you felt like when you were experiencing these Adventures.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This has been one of the best Field Experience classes. The instructor is helpful in identifying resources while also responding quickly to private messages. This instructor is also quick to mark required responses with an "s" or "u" which helps keep one on track to meet their requirements.

    Course highlights:

    The resources that the instructor shares as well as the questions they as continue the educational process outside of the classroom.

    Hours per week:

    12+ hours

    Advice for students:

    This is a required course. You can bring in hours from before your course starts from training or FE1. I suggest making sure you can allocate 12 hours a week to your FE, and talk with your site supervisor about getting the hours you need.
