i found a college near me that offers a 9 month medical assistant training program.
it is mostly phlebotomy, which is what i am interest in the most about that course.
the training is for-
medical assistants, medical secretaries, laboratory assistants, phlebotomists, medical records professionals, and medical transcribers.
i think it is a wonderful way to get my foot in the door and to be able to interact with patients.
afterwards i can become certified.
the best part is i most likely qualify for a college grant of 13k.< which pays for the whole course.
it starts in the summer or fall. i have requested more information about the course and when i need to apply.
so based on the large household and lower household income i qualify for the grant money.
so exciting as this will, no doubt, give me more skills in phlebotomy and people skills prior to entering nursing school.
is there a way that i can be a cna and a phlebotomist?
because the cna course is in the spring and the other one is in the fall.
i would like to work and get payed while getting my pre-reqs done.
