Congratulations on landing a job! Anything in the medical field would be beneficial, that is for sure.
I have considered Practicode myself. I just graduated, so I have not been searching too long for a job. However, if I don't hear of any opportunities in the next several weeks, then I feel it would be a good idea to continue training while also getting enough hours to remove the apprentice status.
I am also looking into internships/externships (Project Xtern), which again, I may not sign up for until I have run out of options as far as applying for positions goes.
Good luck to everyone else on their job search :-)
