What Our Phlebotomy Apprentices Are Saying

“What lead me to seek an apprenticeship with the Healthcare Academy is that I can work towards my goal to work in the healthcare field and help people without having to lose income. My experience through the Academy was amazing. At first I was nervous, but now I am more confident than ever as a phlebotomist.

Participating in this program was the foot in the door that I needed to begin building my career as a healthcare professional. There aren’t too many opportunities that will pay you to build a lifelong career. I’m grateful for the opportunity to be in this apprenticeship. The 2 1/2 hour drive every day was definitely worth it.”

“I saw my mom in healthcare when I was younger, and just like her, I love helping people. I started out in med surge, after a year I did psych, and I fell in love with mental health. My passion has always been science, so I wanted to be in the lab. Thankfully, I can now fulfill that dream. My boss/manager on the psych unit mentioned the Healthcare Academy, and I didn’t apply at first because I didn’t want to leave mental health. However, I had to prepare myself for my career.

Today, I look forward to working with everyone in the lab and learning new things every day. You never know what you’re capable of if you don’t try.”

Kelsey Smith

“While attending the Healthcare Academy you earn while learning practical skills. I’ve always dreamed of being in the medical field, and I’m a step closer to achieving my career goal—becoming an RN. They pay for your schooling, you get paid while attending, and you have the option of bridging over to something else. You’ll be a step closer to something bigger and better. My overall experience through the program is amazing.”
