Orlando, FL (PRWEB) April 27, 2007
Florida Hospital College of Health Sciences (FHCHS) proudly acknowledges the hard work and effort of the class of 2007 who will graduate on April 29 from the online Bachelor of Science in Radiologic Sciences program.
The 185 students in this graduating class completed their degrees from several regions of the United States. Some make their home as close as Orlando; others live as far away as California. However, over the past two years they have come together online with a common goal--to earn their Bachelor of Science in Radiologic Sciences degree. The FHCHS online Radiologic Sciences program has become one of the most sought-after programs of its kind in the country with more than 700 students currently enrolled.
"I would like to be the first to congratulate the Class of 2007," said Genese Gibson, MA, RT, (R) (M) (QM) Chair, Department of Radiologic Sciences. "It takes a great deal of hard work and discipline to reach this step. The graduates will be able to obtain the rewards of their efforts, and gain the professional and personal recognition that goes along with their Bachelor's degree in Radiologic Sciences."
Many of the graduates have developed close relationships with their classmates through the online program even though they are spread throughout the country. The graduation ceremony in Orlando will be the first opportunity many of the graduates have to meet their colleagues face-to-face.
Some of the graduates share their thoughts about their experiences in the program:
Shelley Donnelly of Merced, CA is a part-time instructor and lab assistant for the Radiology program at Merced Community College: "I have really enjoyed my learning experience at FHCHS," said Ms. Donnelly. "When I began the program, online learning was very new to me, but I truly enjoyed it and feel like my education was just as good, if not better than going to on-campus classes. I feel a sense of camaraderie with my fellow students in the program. Most, if not all, were very helpful in every aspect of learning; whether it was just a note of support, help in studying, or pitching in to help transcribe notes and PowerPoint presentations."
Jennifer Altiveros is a radiologic technologist residing in Seacaucus, NJ: "For those in the program, stick with it - all the hard work will pay off. For those still thinking about going back to school, it's never too late," said Ms. Altiveros. "I am amazed at the options that have opened for me. This program is getting recognition, slowly but surely. There are healthcare companies out there waiting to recruit students who graduate from this program. FHCHS does a great job by including requirements necessary to take the advanced certification exams within the course materials."
Florida Hospital College of Health Sciences online Bachelor of Science in Radiologic Sciences allows working professionals from around the world to enhance their career and earning potential without giving up their quality of life. The degree can be completed in as little as 18 months.
