RE: [Histonet] HT schools

From:joelle weaver

Take a look at - see the histology program- under "health careers". This is a distance program with on-line theory, clinical placment possibility (just about anywhere), provisions for working non-certified tech to ASCP certification (via non-traditional credit/competencies) =2C and also contains a practical component. No techs will graduate who cannot embed or cut. We have more applicants than we could place this time in clinical sites.
