  • I register patients in the ER at the moment. It's not what I started out doing and I don't particularly enjoy it, but it pays the bills for now. I started working as a CNA in a nursing home when I was 15.

  • I used to.
    I started out as a Health Unit Coordinator in a hospital.. first in the pediatric unit and then the neurology unit.
    Then I was the Office Manager of a large pediatric group on 5th Avenue in Manhatten.
    Then I became a certified Doula and Lactation Counselor

    Now?? I'm an HR Director for a private special education school! :)

  • I used to. I started out working as a Secretary in the Respiratory Dept. in a hospital. While doing that, I went through Paramedic School, worked as a volunteer for about 4 years. Moved, went through Respiratory School, decided I hated that, then I did Medical Transcription from my home. NOTE: I now hate the medical field and don't ever want to work in it again. I am burned out!!!!!!!!!!!
