Brooke Hales, a senior at Maple Mountain High School, is currently interning as a nurse at Mountain View Hospital in Payson. She first became interested in this line of work because her mom is a nurse; however, she just also likes to help people, and nursing gives her the ability to do that. Brooke’s duties at the hospital are helping with whatever the nurses need to be done; this includes making baby hats, daddy c-section packs, ice packs, stocking clean linens, and I-V trays.

In Miss Hasrell’s first grade class at East Meadows Elementary School, Megan Tietjen is obviously one of the tallest students in the room. As an intern, Tietjen learns how to teach first grade as an observer and helps out in whatever ways she can around the classroom.
“I’ve always around teachers and I enjoy being around little kids,” Tietjen said. “Teaching is also something I enjoy doing. I think this is an enjoyable line of work that lets you accomplish a lot because you are constantly helping kids learn.”

Because of her interest in the “blood and guts” of the medical field, senior Merika Olsen interns at the Mountain View Hospital emergency room. As an intern, Olsen stocks linens and other supplies, strips and remakes beds, retrieves certain things, and is even permitted to watch certain procedures.
“I love working in the emergency room,” says Olsen. “I love it when the days are really busy and there is a lot of action going on. I have gotten to see a lot of cool, bloody things, and even a dead body.”

“Every day is a cool experience,” said Camille Swan, an intern at Family Pet Hospital and The Rocky Mountain Large Animal Clinic where she observes and job shadows veterinary technicians. She has become interested in this line of work because she loves animals and is curious about the medical aspect of the work, especially surgeries. 

As part of her internship, Camille observes and lends a hand to the veterinary technicians at both sites. She restrains animals and also assists the doctors throughout the surgeries. She enjoys observing these surgeries very much.
