Meet Tristen

Workforce Challenge

When Tristen initially visited the Workforce Center, she was employed only part time making $10/hr. Her goal was to obtain employment in the healthcare field, but she lacked the financial resources to pay for training and certification.

Workforce Solution

Tristen qualified for the KHPOP program, which focuses on assisting participants with training in healthcare with a goal of obtaining employment at a self sufficient wage. KHPOP assisted Tristen in working toward her goal of becoming a registered nurse.

Outcomes & Benefits

After successfully obtaining her Registered Nursing license, Tristen received a promotion with her employer, increasing her wage per hour to $16, plus bonuses based on services provided. Tristen is now employed at a self sufficient wage and is happy to be doing the work that she wants to do.
