What to Expect After You Graduate

Working to complete an educational program is a big step and it can provide a sense of accomplishment. But, what happens after you graduate? That depends significantly on the program you’ve selected as well as what your goals and needs are.

What You May Need to Do After You Complete Your Program

Each of the programs available at Caris College offers an opportunity for individuals to start out on their own with the skills they need. After graduation, you may need to complete licensing or take other steps depending on the program. Here’s a look at what some may need to do after graduating from our programs:

Acute/Clinical Technician

After graduation, students are certified as an acute/clinical technician, phlebotomy technician, and EKG technician with certifications through the National Healthcareer Association. That allows you to work in those positions out of school.

Cardiac Sonography

Upon graduation, a person may work into management or in leadership positions in hospitals or private practice. This associate’s degree allows a person to work in area hospitals, clinics, and labs in a cardiac sonography position. Some may wish to pursue additional education to further their career goals.

Dental Assisting

Some students completing a dental assisting degree will continue their education into more extensive areas that interest them. A student will learn a Dental Assisting Certificate which qualifies you to work in a variety of private practices and other areas. There is no licensing requirement for dental assistants, so getting to work right away is typically an option.

General Sonography

Students earn an associate’s degree in general sonography within our program. This program allows those who complete it to begin working in the field directly. Students earn a certificate that allows them to start working in area hospitals, clinics, private practices, emergency rooms, and other locations. No additional licensing is necessary unless you decide to continue your career.

Medical Assisting

Graduating with a Medical Assisting diploma allows a student to start working in a variety of fields to provide valuable services to doctors and other healthcare providers. This allows the student to be eligible to take the Registered Medical Assistant (RMA) exam. This exam is provided through the American Medical Technologists (AMT) organization and is necessary to work in the field directly.

Veterinary Assisting

Students completing this program earn an Approved Veterinary Assistant (AVA) certification. Additional education or testing isn’t necessary in the state to begin working with most veterinarians though opportunities to advance education are available as well.
