Combat Lifesaver Continues His Medical Training at National

Dec 30, 2013

Jason Bingham, a Pikeville Campus student, came to American National University to give back and help people by entering the medical field.  Jason served eight years in the U.S. military while gaining experience as a combat lifesaver.  He served in two different branches of service, the Army and the Air Force. 

After completing his duty to the country, Jason started working in strip coal mining, but was laid off due to the downturn in the coal industry.  Once he was laid off, he decided that returning to college to further his education would give him job security, so he enrolled in the medical assisting program.

While a student in the medical assisting program, Jason decided to seize the opportunity to take the Kaplan exam in hopes of entering the Pikeville Campus’s nursing program. He received one of the highest test scores in the group.   He stated that a career in the healthcare industry would be beneficial not only to him, but also to his family, as there is “job security and good insurance” in that field.  On December 10th, Jason received his interview for the program, and is hoping he can go from combat lifesaver to nurse.
