    I am registered as a Certified Medical Assistant under National Healthcare Association and I’m also a Certified Nursing Assistant but unfortunately I haven’t been able to work because my husband and I had to PCS to Japan. Now I am pregnant and not sure which route to take because being here in japan I am not sure if after I complete a course that I would be able to find a job. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

    I would check military bases, and locations in the area. We have had other students overseas who have found employment. It will be more difficult, but you should be able to check locally in the area.

    Great program and support! 

    Do you have a program for the retired/Veteran spouses? My husband is 80% disabled and a 30+ year Veteran—served in the Air Force.

    Thank you.
