If you are considering a new career path which is leading you to furthering your education, there are many options available today. Many colleges offer full distance education programs; these programs allow you to access all of your materials online and do not require you to be present on campus during your program. Although this option allows you the freedom to create your own schedule, it does not provide the ability to receive hands on, one-on-one help with an instructor or the college experience of fellowship with your classmates.


In blended programs such as the Medical Billing and Coding Program offered at Northwest Career College, you have the best of both types of education rolled into one. The Medical Billing and Coding Program only requires one evening a week on campus where you can interact with classmates, engage in class activities, and have an instructor available for those “bumps in the road”.
If this sounds like the right fit for you, call and schedule your personal tour of our Campus today!
