Students Take CPR and ‘Heart Saver’ Course
Jun 25, 2012
The Princeton Campus recently hosted a CPR training and “heart saver” first-aid course for students in the medical assisting degree program. Medical assisting students must be certified in CPR prior to beginning their externship. Vicky Lilly and Cheryl Peery are the two students that took advantage of this most recent course taught by Director of Health Care Education Patricia Sell who is also an American Heart Association Certified BLS instructor
Both Vicky and Cheryl are nearing the end of their degree programs. Vicky is completing her externship with Dr. Al’Atar - a pediatrician in Princeton who frequently provides externship rotations for National College and has hired multiple National graduates. She has been doing administrative work as well as clinical duties at her site. She said that giving injections to babies is probably the most challenging part of her externship but she values the experience. Cheryl is also externing at a pediatrician’s office for Dr. Munif in Bluefield VA. Dr. Munif puts externs through rotations of the different job duties. Cheryl is currently doing the administrative portion of her rotation. Both students are looking forward to graduating and starting a new career in medical assisting.
