Before I started the Medical Assistant program here at the Allen School, I was working a dead-end job as a Home Health Aide. It was not a fulfilling job and it was very stressful trying to make 30 hrs/week. Taking up Medical Assistant is giving me the push to do better in life. I will not stop here; I will continue to pursue a career in nursing. I have learned so much in both the academic part of the program and in the internship. This was the best choice I have made thus far, and I couldn’t be more pleased.
