Relatives Enter Pharmacy Tech Program Together
Jan 20, 2014
Brandy Armour and Rachel Cox have a few things in common. They are both in the pharmacy tech program at the Bartlett Campus, and they are also related to each other – aunt and niece. Brandy had seen a commercial on television about National College, researched the college online, and saw that it was for her. Brandy said, “[Pharmacy] is a career I have wanted to do since high school.”
Rachel heard about National from her aunt, Brandy. “I chose this program because I am very friendly and work well with others,” said Rachel. “I love the medical field but I don’t like the ‘blood’ part of nursing.” Both Brandy and Rachel plan to work in a hospital pharmacy when they graduate in April, 2015.
Brandy was a stay-at-home mom with three children. “My goals are to be working and on my own with my three children,” said Brandy. “[National] is getting me prepared for the workforce and job ready. I feel that I have made the right decision in choosing National because I am able to get a job in a career that I’ve wanted to do.”
What is the best thing about National College? Rachel said, “I like that all my teachers are willing to help me with any questions I have. All my teachers and classes make a positive impact on me.” Brandy says the best thing is, “[National] fits my schedule and is “hands-on” in everything.”
Both Brandy and Rachel would recommend the college to those seeking new careers. Rachel says, “It’s a way of bettering oneself.”
Niece Rachel Cox and Aunt Brandy Armour are preparing for a new career in pharmacy technology.
