Impressive Passing Rates With Nicolet Medical Assistant Students Submitted: 02/20/2013
Story By Shardaa Gray


RHINELANDER - Getting a couple of students to pass an exam takes a lot of dedication, but getting the whole class to pass is a lot of hard work.

That's what one Northwoods College did last week.

This is the second year all Nicolet College Medical Assistant graduates passed the national exam.

This position is essential to the medical field.

Medical Assistants duties can vary from working in the lab to removing patients stitches.

The Medical Assistant Program Director says they've always strived for a 100 percent passing rate.

"With Nicolet College graduates being able to pass the test, they're able to find work in this area and the benefit is into the communities that we serve." said Nicolet Medical Assistant Director, Candy Dailey.

One of the students in the program thinks the hands on experience has helped her out a lot.

"It reflects on our instructors and the work that you put in. You don't put the work in, you're not going to pass it." said Medical Assistant Student, Kelli Killbury.

15 out of the 18 students are already working in the health care field.

WISCONSIN - A court can require drivers convicted of multiple drunk driving offenses to install an ignition interlock device, or IID, in their cars. The drivers then must blow into the IID to check their blood alcohol level in order for their cars to start. Some drivers, of course, don't want to pay to have the device installed, but a proposed new law may increase fines for people who fail to install it.
