PIKEVILLE — Tiffanie Robinson, a graduate of the medical assisting program at National College’s Pikeville campus, has just been hired by Pikeville Medical Center as part of the medical team which will operate a new trauma clinic that they recently opened.
She was hired by Pikeville Medical Center after completing an externship there as part of her program at National College. Tiffanie said that she enjoyed her externship at the hospital where she assisted with paperwork, helped assess patients, and took their vitals. She said that she felt well prepared for the duties that she was given during the externship. “Everybody was really nice and helpful. It seemed to come really natural and it wasn’t hard at all to catch on.”
Tiffanie, who previously worked as a cosmetologist, came to National College to train for a career in the medical field because she needed to find a job where she would have employee benefits, such as medical insurance, available to her. She said that, as a single mom, she “can rest easy now” knowing that she has the benefits and the secure job that she needs to provide for her family.
