Re: Histology Educators

From:Robin Ryan

Hi to all,

I am an avid reader of the Histonet but for many reasons have not really
partaken in the discussion section but this time I wanted to put in my
information in case anyone is interested.

I am an instructor for an on-line Histology program here in Jacksonville,
Florida.  This is a college based, NAACLS approved program associated with
Florida Community College.  It is a two year program that earns an AS degree
in Histotechnology.  At the end of the program you are eligible to sit for
your HT exam.  This program is 75% on-line (all course work which includes
modules, exams, discussion questions, projects and chat sessions) and twice
a semester students from all over the state travel to FCCJ  for hands-on
introduction and instruction.  In their second and third semester they are
actually in a practicum out in a  local institution learning from "seasoned"
histotechs.  This semester we have had 24 students and it is getting way too
much for one instructor.  It is a wonderful program that meets the needs and
demands of today's ever-changing, fast-paced world.

If you care to find out more you can contact me by e-mail or Merry Carter
