Success Stories

Changing your life is a huge undertaking, and deciding on a school can be a difficult decision to make. That’s why Pioneer Pacific interviewed students about their experience at PPC. Read their stories below and learn what students enjoyed most at Pioneer Pacific College.

“I am from the small town of Harrisburg, Oregon. I didn’t get involved in the medical field, even though I have many family members with careers in it, until a few years ago. I started volunteering on the Harrisburg Fire Department and received my EMR (Emergency Medical Responder) license shortly after. That’s where it all started; where I knew I had found my calling. I knew I found something I was truly passionate about. I was interested in Pioneer Pacific College because I had many friends graduate through their programs and loved it. That’s not what sold me, however. I chose PPC because the moment I walked through those two doors, I felt at home. Each class I have been to, I feel nothing short of welcomed. The teachers have shown that they genuinely care about seeing us succeed. We aren’t just a paycheck to them and I appreciate that more than I can put into words. I enjoy the small class sizes and the fast pace keeps me on my toes and interested. I am very grateful to have started the Medical Assisting Program here at PPC and I can’t wait to see what all is to come (not for only myself, but for my classmates at well)!”

“I love Pioneer Pacific because it is unlike any other school around. Classes are very small, which ensures a bond will be made with teachers and classmates. The “get in get out” schedule is amazing for those who want to start their career as fast as possible. And offering a externship for our final term is perfect to be able to get out into the field quickly and utilize all our skills we learned and allowing us to show the medical field all we have to offer.”
