Meet Erica Holizna, our student feature for this week here at Boardman Training Center!
Erica is currently attending the Cardio Phlebotomy program at BTC, preparing to start a new career in the healthcare field. The short-term career training programs at BTC are perfect for those who want to work in healthcare but aren’t sure where to start.
“I have always had an interest in healthcare, but I knew nursing was not for me,” said Erica.
While enrolled in the cardio phlebotomy program, Erica will practice the hands-on skills needed by healthcare employers. Erica will learn how to perform EKGs, draw blood, and control infections as she completes her healthcare training classes.
Before enrolling at Boardman Training Center, Erica attended an online school for pharmacy technician and worked part-time. She is also a full-time parent of three. When looking for a healthcare training program that worked for her, Erica needed something that would allow her to balance family and school.
“The program fits my life demands and schedule,” said Erica.
We know our students are busy with lives outside of school, so we designed our healthcare programs to get you the credentials you need quickly. Our Cardio Phlebotomy program prepares you for a career in only 24 weeks.
Erica is enjoying attending BTC, and her favorite part is “the new friends I’ve made, as well as the knowledge I’ve gained from my program.”
So far, Erica’s favorite class has been Intro to Healthcare. “I liked this course because I find the human body interesting, and we covered that a lot,” said Erica.
After graduation, Erica hopes to be working as a phlebotomist in a hospital setting. In five years, she would like to have an established career that she enjoys and continue furthering her education.
When asked if she would refer BTC to a friend, Erica says yes, she would. “The programs are ideal for what most people have going on in their day-to-day life,” said Erica.
