Medical & Dental Programs
Medical assistants play a vital role in healthcare settings. They may work in hospitals, doctors’ offices or outpatient care centers. A medical assistant also performs both clinical tasks and front-office responsibilities. A medical assistant may take a patient’s vitals, assist a physician with a patient exam or greet patients and schedule appointments. Carrington’s Medical Assisting program in Las Vegas can be completed in as few as nine months.
Dental offices see all manner of patients—young, old, and in between. Dental health can affect physical health, meaning a trip to the dentist is a routine part of many American’s routine healthcare. Dental assistants work with hygienists and dentists to help treat patients. They complete a variety of clinical and clerical duties, ranging from passing instruments and taking x-rays to scheduling appointments. Carrington’s Dental Assisting program in Las Vegas helps prepare you for entry-level employment in dental offices in as few as nine months.
For those who want less patient care but still want to enter the world of healthcare, medical billing and coding may be a good option. Medical billers and coders help translate what medical professionals do into a language designed for electronic health records (EHRs) and insurance billing. Both the billing aspect and the coding aspect play important parts in the U.S. healthcare system. Without these coders and billers, physicians may struggle to get paid for their services or communicate with other healthcare professionals. Carrington College’s Medical Billing and Coding program in Las Vegas can be completed in as few as nine months.
*This program is available in a Blended Online Format.
Physical therapist assistants work under the supervision of a licensed physical therapist to help patients with mobility and flexibility. Many patients who seek out physical therapy are recovering from injuries, disabilities or other health concerns, but physical therapist assistants may also help patients who just want to live healthier lives and increase mobility. While a physical therapist makes a diagnosis and treatment plan, a physical therapist assistant may help patients complete exercises and stretch or complete other therapeutic techniques. Carrington’s Physical Therapist Assistant program in Las Vegas can be completed in as few as 19 months.
Respiratory therapists help patients breathe easier, quite literally. A respiratory therapist may work with a premature infant whose lungs are not properly developed, a young adult with chronic breathing issues due to asthma, or an elderly patient dealing with an advanced diagnosis affecting the lungs. Carrington’s Respiratory Therapist Education program in Las Vegas helps students learn to assess and treat patients with respiratory diagnoses and can be completed in as few as 23 months.
If you’ve always dreamed of helping others, being in the thick of things, and being a major part of healthcare, an Associate Degree in Nursing can get you into the workforce much faster than other paths. While nursing is a world of its own with dozens of degrees and specialties, an associate degree can be a great way to start your career. Some nurses may go on to complete higher education after gaining real-world experience with an ADN. Carrington’s Associate Degree in Nursing program in Las Vegas can be completed in as few as two years and helps prepare for the National Council Licensure Examination for Registered Nurses (NCLEX-RN).1
