Workforce Challenge

Terri was laid off from a manufacturing plant with very little options for employment. To get a job at self-sufficiency she would have had to drive quite a ways and with gas prices so high that was not affordable for her and her husband as he was laid off also.

Workforce Solution

Terri decided to pursue a career as a nurse. Something she always wanted to do. She took the first step and received her CNA training and certification with assistance from the WIA program. She could not be self sufficient with just a CNA so she tarted the LPN program in August 2012.

Outcomes & Benefits

Terri completed her first semester of LPN with 3 A’s and 3 B’s. Her instructor says she is a very good student. Terri is very excited to complete the 2nd semester and get a job as an LPN.
