I go to a ROP school. (I dont think they have ROP in FL, but what ROP is, is a government program where people who dont have a lot of $ can go to school)
I am currently a Billing student and almost done in 4 weeks then off to my interning for a month.
We just found out yesterday that starting April, the Billing & Coding classes have went from $40 to $800 due to budget cuts.
Very upsetting to find out..
Looks like I'm just going to finish up this billing, Hopefully find an employer that will give me a chance, save up enough $ and continue onto coding later on.
It sucks that I hear more negative things about this field then positives.
It makes me sad to browse job ads and 99% of the ads require at least 1 year experience.
I actually saw my First ad a couple weeks ago advertising saying they take NEW GRADS.
Good luck everyone!
