The Path to Becoming a Paramedic

Cassidy Campbell, a dedicated and ambitious student, recently completed the rigorous two-year Health Sciences program, fulfilling all clinical requirements at the Waterford Fire Department and earning a CNA (Certified Nursing Assistant) certification. 

In addition to managing a full schedule of OSTC and regular high school classes during the day, Cassidy demonstrated remarkable commitment by attending night classes at Waterford Fire Department Station 1, where she successfully obtained her Emergency Medical Technician (EMT) certification.

Cassidy's journey through the health sciences program was significantly influenced by her 2nd-year instructor, Jenna Doyle. It was Mrs. Doyle's unwavering support, encouragement, and faith in Cassidy's abilities that provided her with the necessary drive and motivation to advance in her career. Thanks to this guidance, Cassidy was not only able to graduate high school but also to achieve her CNA license and EMT certification, all by the age of 18.

Now, Cassidy is taking her passion for healthcare to the next level as she embarks on her studies to become a paramedic. In addition to her studies, she is gaining invaluable hands-on experience by working in the Emergency Department at McLaren Oakland.
