Productivity in Quarantine

I did not think that I would be continuing the rest of my Hospital Support Specialist program online, taught through a webcam. It has taken some time to adjust to these new circumstances but every day I try and find things to make myself feel some sort of normalcy.

The First Four Months in College

My name is Michelle Dann and I’m currently taking the Hospital Support Specialist program at Stenberg College. I am 23 years old and have been working for the past five years at a car dealership.

Class Bonding

I think class bonding goes all the way back to kindergarten. All classes, no matter what grade or curriculum is being taught, are going to form a bond, and sometimes little “families” within that big group of people are also forged. I have experienced this all my life, as many others probably have as well. I can honestly say that my…

Impactful Instructors

Twelve weeks in and four instructors later and we are still here! As with any other school we have had different instructors for each Hospital Support Specialist course we are given.
