Busy Stay-at-Home Mom Pursues Career with Medical Assistant Program

Published on October 14, 2014 by Staff Writer

As a medical assistant student at the Broadview University-Orem campus, Megan Strasburg says she is able to earn her degree while still caring for her family. Megan is a busy mother of three children under the age of 6, so scheduling options are important to her. She is a stay-at-home mom during the day, and then attends night classes after her husband gets home from work.

“[Broadview University is] very flexible and understanding of how busy your life is,” says Megan. “They are willing to help you every step of the way to further your education and be in the career you want to be in.”

The hands-on training, small class sizes and helpful instructors have also helped Megan make getting an education possible.

“[The teachers and faculty] help you in every way they can,” she says. “Most teachers will work with you at your own pace. [They are] supportive and push you to succeed.”

Megan hopes to further her education and eventually become a registered nurse. In the meantime, she feels she is well-equipped to begin a career as a medical assistant after she graduates.

“They provide you with scenarios of what could happen in your career, not only for the medical assisting program but for all the programs,” she explains. “They try to prepare for what it’s going to be like in your career.”
