Meet Christopher

Workforce Challenge

Christopher came to the Workforce Center to request financial support / assistance to complete the remaining 3 semesters of his RN program at the local community college. Without assistance, he would be unable to complete this education, as he was working 2 days a week and his spouse was the primary financial support for the family.

Workforce Solution

Christopher used the PACES grant through the Workforce Center to assist him with training expenses. He also qualified for fuel reimbursements, as he was traveling to BCCC / El Dorado campus for his classes and also to different clinical sites throughout his training program. This supportive service was instrumental in helping him complete the program, as the cost of so much travel would have been a large financial burden.

Outcomes & Benefits

Christopher completed his RN program through BCCC in December 2012. He took his state RN boards in March, 2013, and obtained employment at a new healthcare facility in Andover, KS, working as an RN. He is excited about the opportunity to transition into this new field of employment and anticipates the stability of the healthcare field and the self-sufficient wage to be a great support for himself and his family.
