Confidence and Certifications Leads to Two Job Offers for Graduate

Jul 21, 2014

Nancy Van Hook (pictured) discovered just how in-demand well-trained registered medical assistants are, when she received two job offers before completing her associate’s degree program at the Danville, Kentucky Campus.  Medical assisting was one of several careers recently featured on NBC’s “ Today” show during their series which showcased good-paying jobs that can be obtained through career college education.

Nancy accepted a job offer from the Bluegrass Clinic, a general practice that’s located just five minutes from her home. “It’s been pretty awesome,” said Nancy. “I feel like I’ve been very blessed to have a job before I even graduate.”

In her work at Bluegrass Clinic, she enjoys helping the doctors care for patients who suffer from a wide variety of illnesses and injuries. “We’re a very busy office.  On an average daily basis, we see 150-200 patients,” she said.  “I really like the general field, because you get to be with all ages and see all things.”

She has a wide variety of duties in the office, including giving injections, drawing blood, and triaging patients.  “Today, I feel very confident in my ability and very trained in what I’m doing.  All of the skills that I got at National are put to use,” said Nancy, who is also certified as a phlebotomist (NCPT).  “My skills have allowed me to work with the primary care doctor, as well as the OB/GYN specialist.  There was nothing that I didn’t feel ready for.”

As she reflects on the two-year transformation that she’s made, Nancy is amazed at the self-confidence that she gained through her program at National. “It built up my self-confidence, because they were always encouraging me, and told me that I could do it,” she said. “I’m just really glad that I made this decision.  It’s just been life-changing, and I thank God for National.”
