Ahna Caldwell

Ahna Caldwell, NDT Alumni

Ahna Caldwell got her first job in healthcare as a nurse aide and eventually became interested in neurodiagnostic technology after learning about an EEG test (which detects electrical activity in the brain.”

“Working with the brain is so fascinating,” she said. “It can leave so many unanswered questions, so there’s always something interesting to learn.”

One of Caldwell’s favorite parts about the NDT program was the hands-on clinical education she received, which allowed her to hit the ground running when she started her new job as an EEG technologist at Atrium Health Carolinas Medical Center.

“It was great to be able to practice the diagnostic procedures at the hospital with an instructor guiding me and answering my questions as I became more independent with patient care,” she said.
