My baby sister and I were talking about her trip to Tacloban City (Leyte) recently. She and her classmates together with their instructor went to Tacloban City to duty in a hospital to complete the cases needed for the 3rd year Nursing’s first semester. Since she started training and doing routing duties in hospitals, my sister had assisted doctors at labor and delivery, operating, emergency, and recovery. They have already been to a psychiatric institution in Cebu. She is learning a lot about the nursing course.
After the Halloween, she and the group of classmates (where she belongs) will be in training again in Cebu. I believe they will be trained in a home for the aged hospital (Geriatric). They will be introduced to elderly care. The group will be in Cebu for two weeks. I have sent her funds to pay for the fees, room accommodation, 2Go tickets, and miscellaneous fees. Also included in the funds is her allowance.
Because my sister is now in the Junior year in college, oh wait! Now I am confused. I am not definite of her year level. Oh dear. Anyway, because she is in the higher year level now in college, the expenses are getting higher too. Every time they have trainings and hospital duties, there are fees to be paid. In addition, we increased her monthly allowance because of high transportation rates. Car rental is not that reasonable either. So she has to commute. And due to limited funds, she hasn’t traveled lately. Even to the closest tourist attractions, she haven’t got the chance to visit them. How I wish I can take her to a short vacation some time soon. I am sure she would really like that.
