Is fast approaching. I only have two more days before I will be finished with my medical billing and coding degree. Then, I will get exactly one week to relax before having to start on my Bachelors classes in healthcare management.
I am lucky in the fact that I am getting a tuition break due to going to a partnered school for my medical billing and coding. The downside is the fact that I am going to have to pay for my books out-of-pocket. But, there is a silver lining; I can get my textbooks used for a fraction of the price. The downside to that is that some of the books used are almost as much as what they would be brand new.
However, I recently found out that a public library may carry on of the books that I will need for my bachelors classes. So, my plan is to go to the library on Monday, and see if maybe the other books that I will need will be available. Of course there is also google as well when it comes to things like this as far as looking up the required readings.
Some colleges also put the chapters that you need to read in a download. This is also another option for me as well. If you want to pursue an associate degree in medical billing and coding, I strongly recommend Ultimate Medical Academy. They are also affiliated with the AHIMA organization as well as the AAPC. Plus, if you want to further your career, you can go through one of their partnered schools such as National American University.
Sign up through both schools is pretty easy. And, as long as you keep your grades up after first attending Ultimate Medical Academy, they will send you a laptop.
I do not know if I will get this luxury through this new college but, since I have my iPad Pro, I honestly might not need a laptop. Sure, they are nice to have but, I can pretty much do everything on my iPad Pro that I can do on a laptop.
Ultimately, my goal is to push myself to get the best grades possible. And I know that with the support of my awesome husband, I can achieve this. I can achieve anything that I put my mind to. It will just take hard work and dedication on my part to do it.
If you do go the route of purchasing your own textbooks for school, I recommend doing a search and comparing prices in order to get the best price possible.Tags: AAPC, AHIMA, college, dedication, graduating, hard work, National American University, textbooks, Ultimate Medical Academy
