    Jared's Bio:
    I graduated from CSS with a degree in Exercise Physiology. Now I'm in the Doctor of Physical Therapy program here. I love the active environment this school has, which makes for a great experience especially in a major like my own. Coming to this school has been one of the best decisions of my life. Not only is the school a perfect fit, the city of Duluth is so active and alive all the time, which made the selection of St. Scholastica even easier. I have made so many amazing experiences here that I cannot imagine going to any other school.

Taking one for the team

The VA has a very team forward approach in treating their patients as well as always putting the patient at the center of their decision making process. So, to make our rehab team better, my clinical instructor (CI) and I were given the opportunity to instruct a bunch of nurses how to take their patients through a range of motion (ROM) program. This basically means that the patient, whatever mental/physical state they are in, get put through this ROM program to maintain the movement at each joint. When I first found out about it I was like ah yes this is going to be awesome and I’m going to be able to teach something that is like bread and butter to me….until I realized the nurses were coming off of their 8:00P.M.-5:00 A.M. shift and we had to be at the VA at 6:00 A.M. this morning. Not too terribly bad considering I am a morning person, except that I have to drive about 45 minutes each way to work so I got up around 4:30 this morning. Talk about tired…I don’t even know how I am up this late writing this still. Life of the DPT.
