Dr. Evans, paging Dr. Evans. It has a nice ring to it, no?

OK, so Teen Mom 2 star Jenelle Evans isn't about to attend Harvard Medical School, but she's certainly on the right path. The teen mama, who hasn't always been a shining saint of motherhood, will start a training program to become a medical assistant on January 18.

On Thursday she took to her Facebook wall, writing, "Finally in bed after packing and unpacking all day long :) I'm very happy here and proud of myself !!! Hopefully I'll start work next week!!! Then Jan 18th getting school started for medical assisting !!!! :D"

What is a medical assistant, you ask? It's a person who performs administrative and clinical tasks to keep the offices of physicians, podiatrists, chiropractors, and other health practitioners running smoothly. Training programs typically last from one to two years.

A new apartment and a new career? Way to start off 2012 on the right foot, Jenelley!
