Meet Patricia

Student Background

Patricia had experienced the very painful death of her son after a long illness. She was ready to go back to work, but wanted a career where she could help others. Patricia was interested in entering the medical field as a CNA.

Program Description

A mentor suggested that Patricia check out the opportunities at the School of Career Education. Although juggling her responsibilities at home with her coursework was challenging, she received encouragement from her teachers as well family and friends while in the program.

Outcomes

Patricia especially enjoyed the CNA/Acute Care and Home Health classes, because it allowed her to be hands on with the patients. She also appreciated classes in medical billing because it helped her understand medical terminology and insurance coding. “I was able to obtain employment after each course program,” shared Patricia. “Now, I go to work every day and I’m able to use everything that I learned in all my classes.” Patricia works at Riverside County Regional Medical Center and is enjoying her new career.
