Samson’s Answer

I remember when my young brother suffered form pneumonia, I took him to a nearest clinic around home and a Laboratory Technician who was at the duties, made some laboratory tests, including stool wet prep, measurements of some analyte in clinical chemistry like glucose level, liver enzymes like AST, ALT., There she concluded by saying all analyte are in normal range and no parasite seen while my blood bro is suffering. At that moment I didn't satisfied by the lab results and I have decided to check for other assistance by consultating other advanced hospital, there they made a culture of a propriate sample and they realized that my brother was suffering from streptococcus pneumoniae . From the scenario ni have decided to a Laboratory Scientist and be an expert in the field so that I can able to provide accurate and reliable laboratory test results.

Megan’s Answer

I chose to become a nurse because a high school class mate was shot. I visited him in the hospital and I saw how much the Nurses made such a huge impact on his recovery. I decided then that Nursing was my calling. I wanted to be the person that made a difference in someone’s life at their most difficult hour. Best career choice I could have made. Good luck in your future.

Karyn’s Answer

My career of the last 35 years in healthcare administration was not a conscientious decision but I will give you my thoughts in hindsight. When I graduated from college with a degree in Finance, intending to have a career with a large company with opportunity for career advancement, there were no jobs. I was applying for jobs I had in high school wondering why I bothered to go to college. A friend told me that doctor offices need business people too, that I should look there also. I got my 1st "real" job in the accounting department of an academic medical center and never looked back. I wanted career opportunities and I found that and more in the healthcare sector. I learned so many valuable skills and did all kinds of different things to include, medical billing, human resources, managed care contracting, finance & accounting, and physician credentialing, filling my toolbox with experience. Every single day is different and you have to enjoy thinking on your feet in a very fast paced environment. Today, my official title is Chief Operating Officer, Practice Administrator, & Chief Compliance Officer and I am having a blast! Aside from loving what I do I feel very fortunate to be in healthcare because it is very complex for the lay person to navigate. I feel like I have inside information that has provided me and my friends and family with better encounters/outcomes because I understand the healthcare landscape. I also have the privledge of supporting doctors. I could never be a doctor but supporting them makes me feel like I am helping them to help others. I have spent most of my career with surgeons and feel like what they do is beyond amazing, I can not think of a more noble profession and am proud to do whatever I can to help them do what they do, save lives! So, while I did not choose to be in healthcare I am very blessed to have fallen into this profession and can not imagine doing anything else! I wish you happiness in whatever you choose to become!
