I chose NWTC because I would be able to pay my tuition as I went to school. It is affordable, and I didn't want to be in debt. My mom went to school at NWTC as well and had amazing things to say about the school. I took a tour and met the most amazing tour guide and some very friendly NWTC staff. After the tour I couldn't imagine a better place to get an education.
I was planning on just going to school for a semester for Phlebotomy. During my clinical time at the lab is when I saw the rest of the lab field, and from that point on I knew I wanted to be a MLT.
I went to a four-year university before. The classes were huge, and I felt no obligation to attend class if they didn't notice if I was missing. When I went to my first class at NWTC, they knew me by name and would notice if I was in class. If I wasn't feeling well, my teachers would send me an email hoping I would get better soon. The teachers are amazing. I love how the employees at NWTC are compassionate, intelligent, understanding individuals.
I accepted a job in my field.
My advice to future NWTC students: The programs at NWTC are difficult, but you will be unbelievably prepared for your career when you graduate!
