Workforce Challenge

Mark is a single father of 3 children who was struggling to support his family and going through a divorce. He came into the workforce center looking for help with a Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA) class. He wanted to get his CNA so he could work while going to nursing school but he needed help to get there.

Workforce Solution

Because of Mark's situation he was a perfect fit for the (Kansas Health Professional Opportunity Project (KHPOP). He attended two workshops, one on job search skills and one on career soft skills to help him find and retain employment. He was able to receive tuition assistance for his CNA classes as well as a pre-requisite class (Anatomy and Physiology) he will need to get into the nursing program.

Outcomes & Benefits

Mark is doing great in school and just passed his TEAS test with the highest score the college has seen in quite some time. He now has his CNA license and is currently job seeking while he waits to start his CMA class this spring. He has applied to nursing schools around the area and hopes to hear soon where he will be accepted.
