Re: NCOPE Response to Emails on Residency Programs

Joan Cestaro

I find it very sad that only 20% of all facilities are residency sites. It
is a huge commitment on a facility to take on the financial and time
consuming burden of educating a resident, but we must all learn to PAY IT
FORWARD. All of us had a willing facility that guided us and taught us and
we all must find that charitable side of ourselves to assist others. Yes,
we are ALL struggling with the Medicare and political issues that are
plaguing our field, but that should not deter from our humanity to help
these kids struggling to find their way into this field. As a small Ma &
Pop, we cannot afford a yearly resident, but we do it every few years when
we can and we have found some fantastic practitioners that we have kept in
the process. As a Certified Practitioner, I feel it my obligation to assist
where I can and to PAY IT FORWARD.
