Medical Assisting Graduate Provides Care to the Elderly in Her New Career

Dec 18, 2012

Amanda Gracie has turned her passion for caring for the elderly into a career. She earned her associate’s degree from the Louisville Campus and she’s now working as a registered medical assistant for JenCare Neighborhood Medical Center, a clinic specializing in one-stop care for seniors.

Amanda found that her medical assisting program at American National University prepared her well for her new career. She was required to take a skills test during the hiring process at JenCare and she passed the test with ease. “Everyone here was amazing,” she said of her instructors. “Being in the small classes, I always had their undivided attention anytime I needed help with something or didn’t understand something.”

She also found that her externship, which is a requirement of the medical assisting program, offered valuable experience in the field. She worked hard during the externship and the practice gave her a glowing recommendation when she applied at JenCare.

At JenCare, which operates clinics in Kentucky, Louisiana and Virginia, Amanda has the opportunity to work with a variety of specialists including a podiatrist, ophthalmologist, dentist, and acupuncturist. “It’s awesome. I have a rewarding career—something that I have always wanted to do,” said Amanda who hopes to move up in her career with JenCare as the company continues to grow.
