Graduate Gets Job Offer Before Graduation

Jun 24, 2013

After working hard on her coursework in the medical assisting program at the Columbus Campus, Kelly Privette reaped her rewards before she even graduated. She was hired at Central Ohio Surgical Associates (COSA), the site where she completed her externship.  

Kelly’s extern supervisors and co-workers at COSA were very impressed with her performance and dedication – so much so that they wanted her to stay around. In her new position, Kelly will be responsible for administrative tasks such as scheduling, answering phone calls, and working with insurance. Additionally, she will be performing typical medical assisting duties like helping physicians with procedures, checking vital signs, preparing medical charts, and educating patients.

Kelly previously worked in home health care, and she managed her own cleaning business. She decided to get an education because she wanted to get more involved in the medical field. She chose American National University because she liked the year-round course scheduling that would help her complete her degree faster. She also liked the dedicated instructors and small class sizes.

“American National University helped me gain confidence and skills,” she proudly stated as she praised the support she received from her instructors along the way. “All [of my] instructors are very willing to help. I wouldn’t be where I am without their help.”
