Lisa, actually, if you showed up unnannounced at a hospital histology lab
with a science AA or bachelors degree in hand and said you wanted to learn
histology, they would probably not let you leave until you had signed a
contract! And you would be working the next day, if not the same day!

Subject: RE: Potential HT/HTL seeks advice
Thanks to all who e-mailed and responded to my questions. You all were a
big help and opened my eyes to many different things. I have still decided
to pursue a BS, but just not sure how to go about doing it. I can get the
histo AS first, get certified as HT and work while going back to
school. However, I am a little weary of trying to get a BS and working
full time to support myself. I live with my sister now who lives a short
distance from Mt Sac which offers the AS, but I can only stay here for a
couple more years. I have found a school near my parents' home that has a
Biology major w/ a Physiology/Anatomy option. The major has electives/reg.
classes that have a really good balance of immunology, molecular and
cellular biology, genetics, 1 histo class, ect. The chair said he would be
willing to work with me on mapping out a course, but did warn I would get
only a little direct histo training and that I should not try and work
full-time or even part-time while going through the program. Living with
my parents, I would have to work at least part-time. My other option is to
skip the AS altogether and get the BS. After graduation, I would hope to
find a vet clinic or private lab that could train me in specific histo
techniques. If I cant get training, I could always go back and get the
histo AS. The last option I am weary of as well, I feel I am going out on
a limb by trying to find someone that will train me in histo techniques.
Well anyways, thank you all for the advice!
