Let me tell you a little bit about myself. I’m a 36 year old mother of 4 teenagers. Being a young mother i never really thought about going to college. My first priority was providing for my family and making sure we had everything we need to survive.
I have worked many jobs, some I liked others not so much. As my kids got older I started thinking about getting a career started. I wanted them to know that no matter what you can always accomplish your dreams, no matter how old you are. So in March of 2015 I started looking into different colleges, but not just any college. I needed something that was going to fit into my busy schedule.
You see, I work full time as a CNA and also have to be mom and a wife to my family. My husband first went to NTI to get information about a class he was interested in. While at his appointment I asked if they provided any medical classes. They did so I made an appointment as well and meet with some of the staff to see if this was something I could do. The day of my appointment I meet with admissions and had a whole list of questions ready to be answered. Northeast Technical Institute provided me with everything I needed about going to school with no obligations of signing up with them.
I started to believe in myself once again and got my courage back. Northeast Technical Institute was the best decision I could have made.
They have flexible hours Monday – Friday from 8 am to 9pm and also Saturday 8am to Noon. I could pick any day and anytime to attend classes there, which worked well with my busy life. I did a lot of thinking and decided Northeast Technical Institute was the best school for me. I applied and started classes July 7, 2015. My first day I was very nervous and was not sure if I could make it through to the end. But here I am almost a year later and I am working on my last class to graduate with my Medical Lab Assistant. It was hard work and I got discouraged along the way and didn’t want to finish. But with a great support team at home encouraging me on and a great support team at school helping me get through the rough times.
I started to believe in myself once again and got my courage back. Northeast Technical Institute was the best decision I could have made. Not only is the staff amazing, but they also are caring and understanding. I choose to continue my education and signed up today to get my Medical Assistant career diploma at NTI.
Thank you for taking the time to hear my story and I hope you can make your dreams come true at Northeast Technical Institute like I have.
One happy student!
