Great Nurse Aide Training Comes More than Once in a Blue Moon

Tonight will be the second full moon in the month of August.  Typically, there is only one full lunar cycle per month.  So it is rather a rare occurrence when there are two full moons in a 30 day span.  The occurrence was dubbed a “blue moon” and thus became an expression for something that only happens periodically, “Once in a blue moon”.  In reality, a blue moon occurs roughly once every three years.  But you needn’t wait that long to start an exciting new career as a nurse aide. In fact, you could complete your nurses aide certification in a much more manageable window of time.  Then finding a good paying, stable job will be something you’ll also be able to do way more than once in a blue moon.  So go on outside tonight and bask in the blue moon’s glow.

Medical Assistant Training and Other Amazing Feats of Determination

When pursuing your Medical Assistant Certificate, you may feel like the task is impossible.  After all, studying for a new career in a complex field like a medical assistant or medical billing and coding (or any medical industry job) requires a great deal of dedication, knowledge, perseverance, and work.  However, it is eminently achievable.  Just ask the hundreds of scientists, engineers, and administrators at NASA who achieved an even more improbable task this week, landing the rover Curiosity on the surface of Mars.  Traveling to another planet and landing a vehicle by remote control into a crater millions of miles away from home required a lot of hard work, teamwork, dedication, and faith.  These are the same qualities required for success in earning a medical assistant certificate from the Allen School.   Of course, medical aide skills are a bit different from those required in space travel, however, the underlying spirit of achievement is the same within the heart of a NASA engineer as it is within the heart of a student working to better his or her lot in life through a career in medicine.  Congratulations to NASA and all Americans today on this momentous achievement.
