“After graduation, I applied everywhere and contacted everyone I knew in the business. I was hired at Boulder Hospital. Almost a year later, I was hired at Littleton Hospital where I have been expanding my experience. My future goal is to move into management. I recently completed Pima Medical’s Bachelor of Science in Radiologic Sciences. It’s been a good experience. I thought I might feel isolated learning online and on my own, but I found I was always in contact with my instructors. A big piece of online learning is time management. If I can do it, others definitely can.”
