It’s Never Too Late

Apr 07, 2015

Connie Gonzalez enrolled at the Danville, Kentucky Campus to help her find a way out of the factory where she worked. “I was getting too old to do that kind of work, and I’ve always wanted to go back to school, so I said, ‘No time like the present,’” she recalled.

She first enrolled at a local large university but had trouble navigating through the steps that she needed to take to get started in her program. “They just weren’t very helpful with getting things done,” she explained.

When she received a call from her admissions representative at American National University, she went to visit the campus and got all the help that she needed to get into class a short time later.

Now in the last term of her medical assisting program, Connie is excited to be using the skills from her program during her externship at Physicians for Families. After getting hands-on practice in the classroom, she feels confident in her abilities as she does “everything” in the office, including working the front desk, rooming patients, performing EKGs, and giving injections.

Although Connie was initially nervous about returning to school, she’s had a great experience at American National University, and she’s even considering continuing her education in the medical billing and coding program. “I’m trying to better myself,” she stated. “I’m almost 50 years old, but it’s never too late.”
