Student builds skills in Health Youth Apprenticeship.

Abby is a Watertown High School student in a Health Sciences Youth Apprenticeship (YA) at North Shore Healthcare with mentor Lori Lutze.

Abby became interested in the healthcare field through her sister, a nurse practitioner who works in rehab at Lake Country Landing. Abby’s sister mentioned her employer was looking for new dietary aids. Abby applied and got the job.

A day in the life for Abby involves going to school and leaving at 2:30 p.m. to get ready for work. She arrives at work around 3 p.m.

On the job, Abby takes patients’ orders, delivers those orders, provides room service and assists with kitchen work. She gets home around 8:30 p.m.

Abby said if you are interested in this field, you need to learn how to have patience and how to work with different populations.
