Life transitions can be very hard. The transition from the military to return to school was a difficult one for Jonathan. It was so difficult he quit his Medical Assistant (MA) program the first time around. Jonathan’s instructor encouraged him to come back to give the program a second try. Jonathan completed his certificate program and went on to earn an associate degree in Health Care Administration.
 
As a new manager, Jonathan decided to continue his education with the online Bachelor of Science in Health Care Administration program to become a better leader. After a few years of growth and continued education, Jonathan is now teaching others in the classroom in addition to working in healthcare. Learn more about Jonathan’s journey. His story is in his own words is below.  

“After serving for 10 years in the U.S. Army as an automated logistical specialist, I decided to pursue a career in the medical field. I found Pima Medical Institute, enrolled in their MA program and after only six weeks, I quit. Transitioning from the military to going back to school was really tough for me. One day, I stopped back at the school and one of my instructors encouraged me to come back. I decided to give it one more shot and ended up loving the hands-on training. Heading into a new job as an MA, I felt ready and prepared.
 
Soon after starting my job, I enrolled in Pima Medical’s Health Care Administration (HCA) program. I had a family to support and needed to work full time, and their online program allowed me to do both. Shortly after completing my associate degree, I was offered a job as a Test Management Manager at North Colorado Medical Center (NCMC) with Banner Health in Greeley, Colorado. There, I manage the inpatient phlebotomists, the processing department and the outpatient lab. About a year into this position, I enrolled in Pima Medical’s online Bachelor of Science in Health Care Administration program. Since I am responsible for recruiting, hiring and training for the lab, I found the classes to be very applicable and it has made me a better leader.

After only five years, I’ve experienced incredible growth in my new career. I’m even an assistant phlebotomy instructor at my local community college. I am so grateful for Pima Medical! Without the wonderful instructors who encouraged me, I wouldn’t have a career I love.”
