"...the only real measuring stick of a school's success is the achievement of its students."

I was a waitress for years but I knew it wasn't what I wanted to do the rest of my life. After suffering severe injuries from a car accident, I woke up to the fact that I really needed to pursue a career. I'd always been interested in the medical field and have two sisters who attended Pima Medical Institute so I decided to check it out. I found PMI to be really welcoming and I signed up for their Medical Assistant program. I remember well my first day as a very nervous and shy student. My instructors put our minds at ease and they were amazing! My dad became very ill and was hospitalized and I was spending all of my time outside of school with him. My classmates and instructors became like family to me. When I wanted to quit, they encouraged me to stay and I'm so glad I listened to them. I was really nervous going into my externship at the hospital, but I found it really rewarding. My dream was to work in the neurology department at the hospital and as I was preparing to graduate, a position in neurology opened up. I went to my interview feeling confident in my skills and was hired and even offered a signing bonus! I'm so thankful to PMI and my instructors for helping me through the program. I have a career and my dream job!
