Before I started Ross, I was looking to further my education, but was struggling financially. Ross makes sure that they help you be able to afford their program. Ross has a great cheerful staff here and their main priority is to make sure their students succeed. This program helps students become one step closer to their career goals. My personal experience here has been great and I wouldn't change it.Abbie Franklin Graduate Medical Assistant student at Ontario, OH campus Graduation: March 27, 2019
My name is Kimberly. I'm going to tell you how Ross has changed my life. I was working 40-60 hours a week at a factory, 7 days a week. I made the decision to try Ross and see where this life adventure takes me. I am now an RMA and work at Speciality Clinic. I worked very hard on working full time and going to school full time. Ross was a very important decision that I made for my life and a very special place for me. I would recommend that anyone try Ross. It will change your life forever, it did mine. Thank you - KimberlyKimberly Mangold Graduate Medical Assistant student at Portage, MI campus Graduation: June 4, 2018
I chose Ross because it worked with my schedule and I am so happy I did. I went in with a dream and it became a reality thanks to Ross.Chryl Williams Graduate Medical Assistant student at Kokomo, IN campus Graduation: July 27, 2018
In May of 2017, I decided to start my journey, and though many obstacles popped up trying to prevent me from starting, I was able to begin school in June of 2017. When I started school, I was working a part time job and juggling being a full time mom of six beautiful children. It wasn't easy; it took hard work and dedication. I kept two planners: one for work and appointments, the other for school assignments and tests. In January of of 2018, I finished my externship and received my certificate. I even accepted a position when I finished my externship; my hard work had paid off. I absolutely love my job! My team members and patients are great. Best of all, they make work fun. I have truly found my calling.Erica Shelly Graduate Medical Assistant student at Kokomo, IN campus Graduation: January 3, 2018
The best way to change your life is to do something that will challenge you to grow. Ross is that challenge for me.
