I left the healthcare field about three years ago after being a CNA for ten years. After some time had passed, I found myself missing the healthcare environment. With that in mind, I decided to kickstart my return by becoming a Medical Assistant. A friend suggested Herzing University, so I decided to jump in and check it out.
During my studies, I worked full-time right up until my clinical hours. I was also a mother, so time management was not easy! Thankfully, I never felt alone. Herzing’s staff were so helpful and kept me on track. The Financial Aid Department, Admissions and all my instructors helped me stay successful. No matter whom I asked for help, everyone promptly responded and kept me on the right path.
Out of all my studies, clinicals were the most valuable. They give you a first-hand look at what you’re going to be doing in your career, which is so important. Other classes, such as speech, proved to be surprisingly helpful. You’d be amazed at how much that class provided me with skills I now use as a graduate!
