Our 1st Day Of Community Organizing Participatory Action Research (COPAR)

A very beautiful scenery of Cebu at the top of the mountainHave you ever wanted to see a sight of Cebu like this one?

Before I talk about my experience on our first day of COPAR, you may want to check out first what COPAR Nursing really means.

Our first day of COPAR happened last Jan. 20, 2009. Yeah I know, this post is already too late, but don't care anyway. Hehe! I just have to post this one because it's one of my greatest experience in COPAR.

Our group was assigned in Barangay Buhisan, Sitio Nazareth, Cebu City for our COPAR Nursing. Before we arrived at the place, our Clinical Instructor already told us what to expect in there. he said that the place was settled in a Valley, and you can just see Mountains around you where most houses are settled. And he was right! We still actually have to climb mountains just to interview a family for our Family Health Assessment form! But this actually, is what makes COPAR so fun and exciting.

The first picture above was taken at the peak of the mountain we climbed on our first day. Very scenic right? But before you can reach that, you have to go through a series of "phases" first!

1st Phase: The Ascending Phase

That's steep you know! You may think it's easy but it's not! This is where we can test our BALANCE It's very easy to slip because of our shoes and because of the rocky road. Actually there were some who slipped that puts us to the next phase!

2nd Phase: The Sobbing Phase

See? I told you it's not that easy! Imagine if one falls, then all the other people behind might also fall! This phase is where we can test our FEARS and EMOTIONS.

3rd Phase: The Vanity Phase

Now that were at the top, all the fears, the anxieties and the sobbing are gone. But then, vanity strikes again! tsk3! I wonder what test this phase gave to us?? ?_?

4th Phase: The Descending Stage

Actually, climbing down the mountain is much harder than climbing up! This is where we can test the STRENGTH of our leg muscles!

Now, who said being a Nurse was all Boring Hospital Stuffs??

as if hindi COPAR ang ipinunta nyo, more of nature tripping. well, that's a bliss of being a student, being carefree and cheerful.. :-)
