CHCP Austin Wins Two Awards from CCST

This past Monday, October 8, 2018, CHCP Austin was honored with two awards from the Career Colleges and Schools of Texas: “Most Innovative Career College in Texas for 2018” and “Graduate of the Year.” We so proud of the Austin campus in their efforts to help our incredible students reach their career goals in the most efficient and innovative ways!

At CHCP, we have some of the best and brightest health care students and this CHCP Austin Graduate is no exception! Nikki Rodriguez, LMRT Graduate, was awarded the “Graduate of the Year” award. Nikki has exceled from Day 1 of CHCP Austin’s LMRT program, from being a Student Ambassador to graduating with high honors as Valedictorian of her class. During her student address, she said, “A year ago, I only dreamed of being here today, giving you this speech.  I dreamed of working in healthcare to help others and to be a part of a team that was truly making a difference.  Today I am living my dream.” Watch the video of the 2017 Austin Graduation!

Nikki passed her LMRT certification test and while working, enrolled and was accepted into the CHCP Radiologic Technology Completion Program – AAS. She has since graduated from the RT Completion program and will have the opportunity to apply for careers at hospitals and practices that require more advanced radiology training.  We are proud of Nikki and all of our students for the hard work and dedication they put in each week to reach their career goals.

The “Most Innovative Career College in Texas for 2018” award is a recognition of the successful partnership between CHCP Austin and Austin Independent School District’s Eastside Memorial Early College High School. Each Friday, AISD’s students visit our Austin campus to learn about health care programs through hands on experience, career readiness training, and can become HIPPA certified. This program will expand to other AISD high schools this school year. Congratulations, CHCP Austin on your innovation and investment into the future of healthcare!
