In August of 2010 I came to Carrington College having been laid of from my job. I knew that I needed to do something that would get me back in the work force. I chose Medical Assisting.My Grandmother and My Mom were both Nurses. I have always been excited about the Medical field. I have been a Caregiver for years and I decided that this would be the next step that I should take. I really enjoyed the program and met many new friends that also came to Carrington because they wanted a fresh start too. I was a little scared at first and not sure that I could do this. I had a positive family influence and a great support team. I gained more and more confidence each day and more and more excitement each class I completed. I was able to receive perfect attendance . I enjoyed learning my new skills and knowledge. I encourage everyone I meet to pursue their dreams and step out on faith and reach their goals. I did it. ! I am looking for a job and I am keeping in touch with instructors and Career services. They are encouraging me and telling me to keep up the good work and I will have a job before I know it or maybe when I least expect it. I hope so. !
