Charity Rogers completed her health information management program at the Indianapolis Campus in 2014 and has built a successful career with Franciscan St. Francis Health after being hired during her externship. “First I started in my externship there, then they hired me on, and now I just got promoted to coordinator there,” she explained enthusiastically.
As a military wife and former stay-at-home mom, Charity had just relocated to Indianapolis with her husband when she found American National University after researching health information management programs in her area. “I wanted to be sure that I went to [a school] that was accredited by [CAHIIM – Commission on Accreditation for Health Informatics and Information Management Education], so I did my homework,” she recalled.
Charity received funding for her education through her husband’s Post 9/11 G. I. Bill benefits, which he transferred to her. The Armed Service Recognition Grant, available exclusively at ANU, also helped her to eliminate out-of-pocket expenses. “I loved the fact that American National University was small and intimate and one-on-one,” she said. “It’s a great school, [and I had] great teachers.”
Charity was recently recognized by the Indianapolis Campus when she was presented with the Alumni Hall of Achievement Award during the campus’s commencement ceremony that was held in May. “I am living out a dream,” she stated regarding her new career. “I love that I am working in the field that I went to school for, because I know it’s hard to find a job, so I’m very appreciative about that.”
Indianapolis Campus graduate Charity Rogers is one of the newest inductees into American National University’s Alumni Hall Achievement.
