Katerina Simms, Health Information Management
I decided to enroll in the CD-ED HIM program after a decade of being a Registered Massage Therapist. I suffered a broken elbow and decided it was time for a career change. This program appealed to me because it was still in the Health Care field and supported care but from a different facet. Distance Education fit my learning needs. Having a child to care for and continuing to work part-time, I wasn’t able to attend traditional college classes. CD-ED offered a full-time program with all the support from teachers, supplied textbooks, and provided experience required that also fit my schedule. I found the program to be flexible enough to be able to complete work as it suited my schedule and work ahead when possible, while still providing enough structure with weekly deadlines for assignments. I feel prepared and excited to start this new career in Health Information Management.
