First Assist Urgent Care Honored as Distinguished Community Employer

Mar 04, 2013

The Bristol Campus recently recognized First Assist Urgent Care of Johnson City with a Distinguished Community Employer award. First Assist Urgent Care is part of Mountain States Health Alliance - the region's largest healthcare system with 13 hospitals and dozens of physician offices, serving 29 counties in Tennessee, Virginia, Kentucky, and North Carolina.

Several National College students have completed their medical assisting externships with the First Assist Urgent Care clinic where they were able to put their classroom knowledge to use in a real medical setting. Director of health care education Sheri Jessee said the campus is fortunate to have a partnership with First Assist Urgent Care. “Working in an urgent care setting allows our students to gain hands-on experience with a variety of cases,” Sheri explained.

First Assist Urgent Care has also hired graduates of the National College medical assisting program. Miranda Doyle and Cynthia Nieto are among those. “We really enjoy having National College students intern here. They are great workers that are always eager to learn,” said Loretta Leslie, clinical coordinator for First Assist Urgent Care.
