I want to know if anyone has successfully held a full time job and went to pta school during the day. If so what jobs did they find were the most accomodating? I am a full time medical assistant and want to go to school for pta because i find that as a medical assistant i am not so much directly helping people as i am a secretary for the doctor. I recently observed ptas at a kessler outpatient facility and loved their interaction with people and their direct involvement in motivitating them in their exercises.
Anywho, the problems i am encountering are:
1.the only school in my area is out of county and i would have to pay double for out of county tuition
2. It is a day program and i work during the day so i would have to quit my day job and find a night job first before considering the program
3. I need a full time salary to make ends meet every month and cannot really support myself financially if i worked part time.
Based on all these issues i am finding it pretty near impossible to transition into this career. I want to know if other people have faced these hurdles and if so how have they overcome them? Would they suggest to me to find an easier career transition??
ANy input would be appreciated. Thanks!!!
