Aida Nieves (left) and Jenni Bellesfield (right), medical assistants at Spring Ridge Surgical Specialists, are currently attending Reading Area Community College to earn their Certified Clinical Medical Assistant (CCMA) credential. Spring Ridge Surgical Specialists is fully sponsoring Aida and Jenni in their studies.
The intensive training is offered to multi-skilled healthcare providers and certifies their readiness to perform tasks such as interviewing patients, measure and record vital signs, prepare exam rooms, clean and sterilize medical equipment, administer injections, perform venipuncture and assist with EKG’s, all under the physician supervision. The CCMA certification is in addition to Aida’s and Jenni’s previously earned Medical Assistant credential.
As they began their classes, Aida and Jenni were thrilled and surprised to be told by their instructor that Spring Ridge Surgical Specialists is the first local healthcare employer to sponsor employees in achieving the CCMA credential through RACC. Says Aida, “It was really nice to be in class and hear that SRSS is doing something no other healthcare provider is doing yet. That’s really great news for our patients.”
Please join us in congratulating Aida and Jenni on their CCMA training and certification!
