Student Perspective on Health Career Courses at WMCC

MR from Lancaster is a student in the Plymouth State RN program.
When I first started the registration process, I was immediately treated like part of the family. The staff is so open and friendly and when you walk through those doors you are always greeted with smiles. They know you by name and are truly glad to see you. For a non-traditional student this kindness eased the daunting anxiety of paying for my education and truly dedicating myself to my education.

It is a huge commitment, but the staff in Littleton pool all their resources and collective knowledge to make the transition as painless and uncomplicated as possible. To them, there is never a dumb question and the excitement of the staff when they are able to help you is infectious. It has been an experience completely the opposite of what I have experienced in larger universities.

On a whim, I chose to take Anatomy and Physiology to satisfy my science requirements for a Liberal Arts degree. I originally had no intent on furthering my career in the medical field, but was looking more towards Human Services and Education. After only one semester of Anatomy and Physiology, I was hooked. Professor Tracia O’Shana opened my mind to the world of science and medicine by presenting the incredibly thick, complicated information in innovative ways. She not only teaches the information but also something much more valuable; she teaches her students how to translate that information into their own words, and understanding.

AG from Lowell, VT is a medical assistant student at WMCC Littleton.
I'm so grateful to have transferred to WMCC. The support and encouragement I've received from teachers and staff is immeasurable. The friendly helpful faces at the front desk are always ready to answer questions. My whole outlook on being an adult learner as well as a single parent struggling to balance school, family, and work has brightened, and I've discovered that it's very possible to maintain an equilibrium between the three at WMCC. In the three semesters that I have attended, I have grown into a confident college student. The Medical Assistant program is wonderful, and full of very knowledgeable professors who are happy to assist students. I feel very confident in my academic future thanks to the solid foundation I've been given at WMCC. I highly recommend WMCC to anyone who is interested in pursuing an education and a career in healthcare.

BP from Lyman is a physician’s assistant student at Franklin Pierce University.
Coming off a combat tour as a medic in 2006, I decided to pursue becoming a physician assistant. WMCC provided me with a fantastic educational experience in taking prerequisite, applied science, and health studies courses. The classes offered and staff teaching them have been first-rate! I am now in the physicians assistants program at FPU and my classes from WMCC have transferred with ease and some as upper level transfers. Get your future medical career started at WMCC. You will not regret it.

KD from Franconia is a WMCC medical assistant graduate and a student in the Plymouth State RN program.
I love my job as a medical assistant at Littleton Regional Hospital and I am looking forward to completing my bachelor’s degree in nursing at PSU. The Littleton Center of WMCC has helped me achieve my career and education goals right here! The instructors, staff, and program advisors have all been simply amazing.
