Jasmine Harris is an MNTC Medical Assisting student. She is the Norman Kiwanis Club selection. She is a member of the NTHS and is working towards her MA certification.
As an adult having this option is a blessing. I’ve tried college courses multiple times but I’m a more of hands-on learner. MNTC caters more to their students and that's helped me experience success.
Harris said her confidence has been boosted tremendously while in MNTC’s program believes that her instructor has gone above-and-beyond preparing her for the career field. She is currently a candidate to work as a MA at OU Health Physicians Dermatology Clinic.
Harris graduates from the program in May and looks forward to attending college. She looks at earning a master's in nursing at the University of North Texas.
