“I began working in the field less than a year into training and became the Chief Technologist”

“The most important aspect of my education at Labouré College was the personal attention, support and encouragement I received every step of the way that afforded me the confidence to become successful.

With a combination of high-quality theoretical classes and hands-on clinical experience, the Neurodiagnostic program at Labouré allowed me to learn and grow at such a level that I began working in the field less than a year into training and became the Chief Technologist at one of Boston's finest hospitals just 4 years after graduation.

I am very grateful for my experience at Laboure because it provided me the opportunity to break into an exciting field and become a valued member of a health care team."
