I know we've talked about this topic many times but I have a specific case I
would appreciate some help with.  There is a lab helper who has been
performing various types of labwork for years and has been working in
histology now for a couple of months.  She has a BS in biology and I would
like to help her become a registered histotech.  My hope is that, with so
much previous lab experience as well as the bachelor's degree under her
belt, she can sneak in under the bench-trained tech category before the 2005
deadline.  Taking an accredited HT program is not a possibility for her as
she would need to relocate to a place that offers a program which she could
not currently afford anyway.  Could anyone give me an idea about the
feasibility of this idea?

Thank-you in Advance,

She can enroll in a histotech program while working in your lab, it is
excellent and well worth the effort, time and money. Contact Glenda Hoye at
Indiana University (ghoye <@t> iupui.edu) none of her students are on site at
the university but work under the auspices of a trained HT at their labs.
What a wonderful way to become a registered histotech if one cannot
relocate and there may be other programs available and comparable to
