CURRICULUM

I am currently enrolled at Tidewater Community College in the Health Information Technology Program.  I am currently in the last semester of my freshman year.  I am enrolled in three online courses and one campus oriented one.  I anticipate graduating in May of 2005.  I have been pursuing an associate’s degree for some time now.  This profession specializes in coding diagnoses and procedures in patient records for reimbursement and research.  This profession can also acquire employment supervising coding or other clinical data management functions.

CAREER PLANS

After completing my associate’s degree in Health Information Management, I am planning on pursuing employment with a hospital to gain on-hand experience for a few years.  Next, I would like to work for an outsourced coding company and possibly work from my home.  With the advancements in technology, the electronic medical record is eminent.  When the medical record becomes electronic, I am looking forward to working out of my home.

COLLEGE ACTIVITES

Currently I am not able to participate in any college activities because of my children’s schedule and my husband currently being deployed.

PERSONAL INFORMATION

I personally like online courses because it gives me more time with my family.  This is my first semester at Tidewater Community College.  Currently, I am a full-time student.  I am Navy wife with two daughters ages 2 and 9.  I have been in and out of college since I graduated from high school.  My family and I have been living in the Virginia area for about three years.
