Ms. Akendra Jackson

My name is Akendra Jackson and I will be your child's facilitator for the 2021-2022 school year here at the Satellite Center for Medical Assistant. I have been a nurse with St. Charles Parish Public Schools for 12 years, but this is my first year as a facilitator with River Parish Community College here at the Satellite Center. I look foward to a building with my new team members this school year.


MEDICAL ASSISTANT is a  hands-on course that is designed to provide students the opportunity for clinical experiences in health care facilities for those interested in pursuing a career with the health/medical profession. This course provides an introduction to medical terminology related to Basic Body Functions and Clinical Procedures.

  • Congratulations to our team members who earned their Clinical Medical Assistant Certification. They participated in a Pinning Ceremony to honor their accomplishments.
