Meet Amparo

Workforce Challenge

Amparo is a married mother of two toddlers. She hoped to start a career in the medical field, but she was unsure if she could commit to a long-term nursing program with young children at home.

This certification course is significantly shorter than the licensed vocational nursing program, and is exactly what she needed. The funding helped to ease financial stress by allowing her to learn new skills while continuing to raise her children.

Outcomes & Benefits

Amparo successfully completed training and shortly after, obtained full-time employment. She plans to continue her education when her children. In the meantime, she is happy to be gaining practical work experience in the medical field.
