Representing our Medical Assisting with X-Ray (Limited Scope)/EKG and Medical Billing and Coding programs, a group of 51 Fort Worth Campus Allied Health students accepted the challenge, studied hard, and prepared to take one of the following certification exams on May 20, 2011: coding, medical assisting, EKG, or phlebotomy. “Passing my certification exam will allow me to have more opportunities in the medical field,” said MA-X student Julieta Serano.
Medical Billing and Coding student Paula Bonetti noted, “This certification shows that you’ve retained your knowledge. I love learning, and I’m extremely competitive when it comes to good grades and working hard. My ultimate goal is to work for a cardiologist, and passing this certification will get me one step closer to achieving that goal.”
“Passing the certification exams adds credentials to students’ résumés and shows their instructors that they’ve absorbed the knowledge they’ve learned in class,” said Allied Health Department Chair Tonia Lawrence.
O’Kenya Bennett and Tennille King are both in the MA-X program, and passing their exams means more to them than just receiving their certification.
“The medical field is neat to me, because you learn how to care for people and ultimately how to treat them. My daughter is deaf, and she began to take interest in what I was learning in school. Now, the whole experience is even more special to me,” said O’Kenya.
Tennille said, “I want more than just my medical assisting certification. I want the EKG and the X-ray certification as well. I want it all! The more training I have, the better the opportunities I will have to gain employment.”
For students who are attempting their certification in the near future, Tennille has some useful advice: “Stay focused, and keep looking at the bigger picture. Encourage yourself, because you are your best cheerleader!”
