Breanna Jones drove past Pima Medical’s campus often, and when she finally decided to change from her current job to a career, she says she knew just where to go.
“I was working at Goodwill Industries when I realized I didn’t want to still be working there when I was 40 years old. I realized I needed a career and decided the medical field might be the best place for me. I live near Pima Medical Institute and drove past it regularly, so I decided to try their Medical Administrative Assistant program (now called Health Care Administrative Assistant Certificate.)
I was nervous but my instructors made me feel comfortable coming to them to ask for help or to talk with them about school or personal life. I took my work seriously and got good grades thanks to my amazing instructors. My core instructor helped me understand math, something I never was able to understand in high school.
I was placed at a great site for my externship and I felt confident and prepared. After I finished, they offered me a position and I am currently working at Lotus Family Health and Wellness as a Medical Administrative Assistant. I love my job; we are all close and it feels like family!
I recommend Pima Medical to my friends. The medical field can seem scary, but I tell people that Pima Medical prepares you by giving you the skills and confidence you need to do your job. Thanks Pima Medical!”
