Brief excerpt from interview: Last spring a student shared how she was part of a home visit, and how an elderly person there was being taken advantage of by their relatives, which in their culture, that's what you do. She felt comfortable in her journal to talk about it. She did talk it over with her preceptor, and her preceptor said this is what they do in that particular culture. Journaling helps students articulate some of these [inconsistencies and cognitive disconnects]... They're definitely in another space, which is why journaling is so important, because then, I keep track of them. I know how vulnerable they are, and that's why kindness is my other huge criterion for a preceptor... Internships can be anywhere in the United States. Students must meet entrance requirements to get into program: 3.0, basic nutrition, basic chemistry and physiology, and math, before they even come in.
