Student Gets Job Offer Before Graduation



Mar 23, 2012

Two weeks before her graduation, Bristol Campus graduate Krystal Flores has already accepted a job offer. For the past several years, Krystal has been a stay-at-home mom to her young children. Her husband is a Sergeant in the U.S. Army and is the Army recruiter for the Bristol area. Krystal was excited to find out that her military spousal benefits would pay for most of her education at National College. She chose the pharmacy technician diploma program because she has always been interested in the medical field, having once been a certified nursing assistant. Her husband’s job could relocate any time, and the pharmacy technician program would allow her to get her education quickly. She also knows that pharmacy technicians are needed all over the country, so if she did have to relocate, she knew she would have a marketable skill set.

Krystal really enjoyed her time here at National. She notes her love for her instructors saying, “They really took the time to help me understand.” Krystal was hired at the Bristol Regional Medical Center as a pharmacy technician. She is working in the pharmacy filling prescriptions and making IV and antibiotic drip solutions for the entire hospital. Next month she takes the national certification test, and when she passes, she will get a pay raise. “[National College] helped me get motivated to take on school, family, and work,” said Krystal. “I proved to myself that I could do it all.”

Krystal Flores is pictured at work making IV fluids.
