First come, first qualified, first accepted.
“BTC’s LPN program didn’t start for another few months, so I went ahead and started the Medical Assistant program to get more nursing experience. This allowed me to get started with school right away because I knew if I didn’t stick to my goal and start now I wouldn’t come back. Plus, the MA program gave me more experience because I learned all about shots and the nursing side, and I got that administrative side of the nursing field.“
