I always thought about working in the medical field because my aunt does, and I thought this program would make it easier for me to find a job and prepare me for a career. I have already earned my STNA certification, and I recently started a job at Shepherd of the Valley in Liberty. I want to continue working in a nursing home after graduation, but I have also thought about pursuing school further to become an obstetrician.
