Dear Histonetters,

Thank you all for your responses to the survey question I put out on
this subject.  The good news, so far, is that I have received this
response back from Rhoda Jost, who is the MLT/HT Program Director at
Florida Community College Jacksonville:


I was able to have the 4 year HT degree put on the list of new programs
to investigate.

Could you forward the responses to the following people:

nhenning <@t> fccj.edu (Dr. Neal Henning, Dean of Workforce)

and  me  rjost <@t> fccj.edu


Rhoda Jost

MLT/HT Program Director


Now, may I ask all of you to pass the word along to anyone in the
Histology community that would be interested in this opportunity?  Ask
them to please email both Dr. Henning and Rhoda indicating their
interest in this opportunity.  They are putting the HT 4 year degree
option on the list of new programs to INVESTIGATE and the chances of
this becoming a reality will be based on parameters including number of
HTs interested in such a program as well as shortages in staffing.  So,
if any of you who are supervisors, or even "working on the bench HTs"
can provide any statistics on job openings, as well as difficulty
recruiting due to shortage of Histotechs, that would be extremely


I will be forwarding all your letters to Rhoda and Dr. Henning, but
don't let that stop you from emailing them directly!!


Thank you all, and good luck to all of us!
