We look forward to Medical Laboratory Professionals Week (April 20-26) each year. This year is especially exciting for Aureus Medical, because the Med Lab division is celebrating our 10 year anniversary this April. It seems fitting that we get to celebrate Medical Laboratory Professionals Week in the same month as our inception.
April is the time of year when we step aside from our busy schedules to appreciate a “rebirth” of sorts and celebrate spring. What better month to also celebrate the amazing work that Occupational Therapists and Occupational Therapist Assistants perform on a daily basis.
Have you ever thought about continuing your education? It’s an important part of advancing your career as an Anesthesia Tech; however, if you are like many, this task is easier said than done.

This past week the Student Outreach Team here at Aureus Medical had the amazing opportunity to experience the APTA Combined Sections Meeting in beautiful San Diego, California. Madelyn, Sunny, Jennifer, and I could not wait to leave the 5 degree weather of Omaha, Nebraska for the warmth and sunshine of the west coast!
Each of us was excited to meet students, therapists, and professors from all over the country and talk about the opportunities we could present to them in the future.
It’s that time of the year again! Holiday break is approaching and for some this means eggnog and excitement, while for others, it’s a time of rest and maybe a little apprehension. Don’t get me wrong, several students are taking this time to kick back, enjoy family time, and really catch up on some z’s. For several others though, December equals graduation.
Whether you’re a first time traveler or an experienced traveler it’s very beneficial to stay organized. The best way to stay organized is to keep files or folders with you on assignments of all your medical records and certifications. Keep your work history updated with the dates and names of past managers for references.
A year has passed since I started writing these blogs and in the process, I’ve had a lot of fun. I started this journey giving my opinion to a common question, and it’s the same question that I am continuously asked at fairs, online or on the phone….should new graduates travel?
What are your strengths? A common question asked in a job interview, but do you really understand your strengths and the value that you bring to the market? Understanding and effectively presenting your value to the market will also distinguish what you can charge for your services. It is important not only to understand your value, but how to increase your value in the market.
