Graduate Continues Education in the American National University Online Program

May 27, 2014

When Robin Fee was asked to sum up her educational experience at American National University, she quickly did so in one word.  “Opportunity,” she said.  “It was an opportunity that I didn’t think was open to me, because I wasn’t interested in going to Eastern, or UK, or a traditional college,” said Robin.

Robin earned her associate’s degree in medical assisting at the Richmond Campus and recently participated in the campus’s graduation ceremony, but her educational journey isn’t ending there.  She’s continuing on in the American National University Online program where she’s working toward her bachelor’s degree in health care management. 

“I think that it’s going to be an awesome opportunity,” Robin said of the online program in which she was able to transfer her credits from her medical assisting program to help her earn her bachelor’s degree as quickly as possible.

She made the decision to continue in the health care management program to help her build a career in hospital administration.  “I worked at UK and found that I was more administrative than clinical,” she said.  “I think that getting the bachelor’s degree is going to prepare me more for that administrative position.”

Although she was initially worried that she might not receive the same strong support in her online program that she found at the Richmond Campus, the online staff and instructors have been just as responsive to any questions or concerns that she has.  “One phone call and it gets taken care of,” Robin explained.
She feels that career opportunities are plentiful thanks to her education, both in-class and online. “With the degrees that they offer, and with the degree that I earned, there are so many opportunities in the area,” said Robin.  “It’s just given me that ‘Can Do’ attitude.”

Robin Fee recently earned her medical assisting degree in-class at the Richmond Campus and is continuing her education to earn a bachelor’s degree in health care management through American National University Online.
