Although physicians are not required to swear the original Hippocratic Oath, written in 500 BCE and detailing a moral code of contact, they do vow similar sentiments. The modern version essentially states to “do no harm” and also consider patients’ social and financial well-being when treating them. Unfortunately, there are unscrupulous physicians out there who abuse their position for personal financial gains. In Illinois, the lax medical regulations have made it possible for even disgraced doctors to line their pockets at the expense of their patients.
Most people who have gone to college and received their degrees say “goodbye” to the hallowed halls forever. Griselda Calderon, senior admissions coordinator in nursing at Northwestern College, is an exception.
Calderon was an adult student who didn’t return to college until she was 30. She graduated from Northwestern College with a degree in paralegal studies. “I wasn’t successful at the community colleges because it’s just like you’re in an empty hole. Here, it’s a little more one-on-one,” she says. She went on to complete her bachelor’s degree in psychology from Roosevelt University. After accepting a temporary paralegal job, she soon realized it wasn’t what she wanted in a career. “I had to sit back and evaluate what I really wanted.” She turned to her alma mater, where she always felt that she mattered. “I looked online,” she says. “I saw they (Northwestern College) were hiring in admissions, and I’ve been here ever since.”
