Medtech Orlando will move into 16,000 square feet of leased space at 2000 N. Alafaya Trail in October, after gutting the building “down to the studs” for a $1 million buildout, said Medtech President and CEO John Hopkins. “We’ve been trying to get into Florida, particularly Orlando, for quite a while.”

Advance for Nurses
Aug. 1, 2012
Jennifer Cannon, MSN, RN, is the senior director of the nursing program for Medtech College, with campuses in six states and the District of Columbia. Cannon cautions nurses from being too hasty to make a move, particularly early in their careers.
Most critically, she says, nurses need to be well-grounded in clinical care experience, even if they eventually move into other roles.
"You really need to have that foundation of clinical nursing," she says. For those who are not feeling bedside nursing is for them, Cannon suggests trying another department or unit before moving away from bedside care entirely. "Build a solid clinical foundation - give yourself 3-5 years to really get proficient," she advised.

Karen Sailors has known adversity. After being widowed in her early '30s, she raised two children on her own. In 2007, she was laid off from her job. And when she started thinking about the next step in her life, it was clear she needed to get back to the classroom to build on the training she'd gotten years ago at a technical college. Facing these challenges was tough enough, but Sailors managed them while overcoming a personal disability: She has been deaf since birth.
