I’ve always had a passion for medicine and for healthcare, so when I found out they did have this program I was very thrilled. We learned about medical terminology, we got introduced to the EKG.  I was actually in clinicals and I got a call from Henry Ford Hospital, and I am so thrilled to be there working in the Oncology Department.  They have really changed my life and my kids’ life because now I don’t have a job, I have a career, and it’s something that I can definitely grow in.
