Workforce Success Story Submitted By:
Pikes Peak Workforce Center

Meet Kelly

Workforce Challenge

Kelly had already earned associate degrees in Fine Arts and Nutritional Science and was also certified as an EMT. She was enrolled at UCCS pursuing her nursing degree and was working part time while living nearby with relatives. She was struggling financially and was looking for support.

Workforce Solution

Kelly connected with the Pikes Peak Workforce Center (PPWFC) and was enrolled in the Workforce Investment Act Adult program. She only had three semesters left to complete in her program. Through the Adult Program, Kelly accessed financial support for tuition, books and gas. PPWFC also helped with the fees for her NCLEX examine and her license fee.

Outcomes & Benefits

Kelly earned her BSN and was hired full-time by a local healthcare facility for double what she was earning before.

Kelly said, "Thank you so much to the PPWFC team for providing, not only tuition assistance, but excellent customer service. Staff always responded in a timely, professional & helpful manner and was positive & encouraging. I am extremely grateful. Since graduation I have started my new job as a nurse & I love it. This could not have been done without PPWFC's help."
