Student Testimonials

“I am currently in the last quarter of classes to earn my Associate in Science Degree in Medical Assisting. While doing my externship at Anderson Family Care, I was offered a medical assisting job, which will start next month. Forrest College really helped to prepare me for the type of work that I will be doing out on the job. I received the education and training to do various procedures, such as administering an EKG or taking vitals, in my classes at FC, so that I would be prepared to get a job in the medical assisting field. I am applying what I have learned in my classes while doing my externship, and thankfully, my education and externship performance led to a full-time job. Upon completion of my externship, I plan to take my certification exam to become a Certified Medical Assistant(CMA). I feel very blessed that I was able to get a full-time position in Dr. Dbouk’s office and can’t wait to start my professional career as a medical assistant! Thank you Forrest College!”

“I am currently taking an ethics class that is taught by Mr. Rivers. When the subject of ethics comes to mind, you may only think of morality. I had not presumed the depth or the importance of the subject, until I realized that ethics covers human nature, good versus bad, and right versus wrong. Mr. Rivers explains to us how, as humans, we tend to make exceptions to the existing rules. Also, he encourages us to carefully consider situations from both sides of an issue and break down any decisions we make into a set of rules that we can use to logically alter our decisions for the best outcome. I find that Mr. Rivers’ approach to teaching this class is exceptionally interesting. We have class discussions on issues such as death and dying, abortion, lying, stealing, and other moral dilemmas. Mr. Rivers welcomes input from his students and has a way of tastefully breaking down the facts on these very serious topics. When asked what he wants to accomplish in his ethics class, Mr. Rivers stated that he “hopes to bring to life some of the experiences of the real world into the classroom and sincerely hopes to give us some aspect of life.” I highly recommend this ethics class to anyone who has yet to take it.”
