October is Health Care Recognition Month!
Every year on October 5th the world recognizes World Teachers’ Day. To celebrate, this month we will be recognizing nominated Carrington College California instructors for their ‘Commitment to Teaching Excellence’. Each week through October we will recognize an instructor from a different health care program; this is the first year of what we hope will become an annual event.
Campus Executive Directors have been asked to nominate instructors in the following health care programs – Dental Assisting/Dental Hygiene, Nursing, Medical Assisting, and Respiratory Care. The four recipients will be chosen by our school’s leadership.
The nominated instructors will be recognized for their individual excellence in their role. For delivering teaching that motivates intellectual curiosity in their students, that thoroughly engages students in the enterprise of learning, and has a life-long impact. These instructors not only make a difference in their students’ lives, but their community as well.
However we recognize that our programs are more than just the instructors, so we want to recognize our students and faculty as a whole, as well as those professionals in their specific communities. You may have seen some flyers and posters around campus, detailing some celebratory events happening at a campus near you!
Here’s the breakdown of the events for each week; note that not every campus will be participating due to the fact that program availability varies by location:
- Week One (Oct 1-5) – Dental Health Week
- Week Two (Oct 8-12) – Specialty Nurses Week
- Week Three (Oct 15-19) – Medical Support Week
- Week Four (Oct 22-26) – Respiratory Health Week
The honoree in each field will receive a commemorative plaque and will be featured in a blog in the coming weeks. Stay tuned and see if one of your instructors is recognized for their ‘Commitment to Teaching Excellence’.
