There are many things that Angie Flynn, a graduate of the $$Danville, Kentucky Campus, loves about her job working as a registered medical assistant at Ear, Nose and Throat of Central Kentucky. “I love the people here. I love the atmosphere. I love the hours. I love that it’s so close to home,” she said.
Angie has a variety of duties at ENT of Central Kentucky, including giving allergy shots and triaging and rooming patients. “One of my favorite parts is that they do minor surgeries and I get to assist with those,” she said. “I get to see some really neat things.” She’ll also be trained in the near future to conduct allergy testing.
Angie was hired by ENT of Central Kentucky just before graduating from American National University when the practice contacted Stephanie Slone, the director of health care education at the campus, to ask her to refer some upcoming graduates for the opening in their office. “They called me…on a Thursday and I started on Monday,” Angie recalled of being hired for the job.

Small class sizes, one-on-one attention from her instructors, an externship at Frankfort Urgent Care, and her certification as a Registered Medical Assistant (RMA) were all also invaluable to her as she entered the job market.
“I learned a lot and I’m happy with what I did learn. It got me a job that I love that’s a lot better than where I was,” said Angie who previously worked as a bank teller. “I feel more comfortable with my home life with my finances, and I would have never had this opportunity [without my degree].”
