*In 2015, I chose to pursue a promising career path in registered nursing. I've never worked in the healthcare field before; instead, I've always worked in food service. I knew I loved working with people, and the thought of being a partner with patients by promoting positive changes to their health intrigued me. I began down this path by enrolling at ACWHCC's STNA program in 2016. ACWHCC was affordable and would help me become better familiar with the healthcare field.
* Before school I was happy and content with working in a factory. I was happy to be going on my 13th year of employment. To my dismay, I was handed that all too famous "pink slip". I searched for over a year in finding employment, but had no success. The opportunity arose that I could go back to school to learn a different occupation. I hated the thought of being in a classroom for 6 hours a day. While on the skeptical side, I decided to give it a shot. I knew very little about computers or office work. I am glad my caseworker brought the idea of Business Office Technologies to my attention.... I have learned so much about computers and the different software that's often used in an office. I feel more confident...I have gained back my self-esteem, my pride, and do not fear trying to learn something new at my age! -Jeanette, 2011
*It was a challenge to learn all the new skills I have acquired, certifications that have been taken, but has been worth it in the end. The instructor was patient, throrough, and has gone above and beyond to make sure all of us girls succeed. -Tiffany, 2011
*I wanted to better my skills and knowledge to get a better paying job...I feel like I did learn a lot and now I can further my career in the places i would enjoy... -Sue, 2011
