Teria Newell came to BCAT after looking at many other programs and colleges for phlebotomy. She selected BCAT on the recommendation of her niece who said, “Aunty, the program is amazing, encouraging and free!”
Teria’s niece is a graduate of BCAT’s sterile processing program, so she knew firsthand the impact BCAT can have on someone’s career.
On July 29, Teria earned her national certification in phlebotomy after completed her coursework at BCAT. She is actively looking for a job with the long-term goal of becoming a nurse.
“Coming to BCAT was definitely the right choice, “said Teria. “At BCAT they actually care about you and want to make sure you exceed not only in the program that you are participating in, but in life after as well.”
Teria said she is proud to be a graduate of BCAT and is looking forward to helping others in the phlebotomy program. “Ms. Porter is a huge inspiration. She cares about each and every single last student in her program. Ms. Porters make sure everyone will make it and succeed. I thank her for being hard on us and giving us that push we needed.”
From all of us at BCAT, we are so proud of you Teria!
