Meet Kristen

Workforce Challenge

As a CNA, Kristen was working two jobs to support her family. She wanted to take the next step in her career, but she did not have money for training.

Workforce Solution

Through the Center, she was approved for WIA funds to financially assist with LPN training. In order to complete the training, she went from working full-time to working part-time. In order to save money, they moved in with family to keep costs down while in school.

Outcomes & Benefits

Kristen graduated from training, but she failed her NCLEX exam twice. She was very devastated, and Center staff encouraged her to not give up. Soon she passed the exam and obtained her LPN license. Then, she secured an LPN position and now, she no longer has to work two jobs. She is very grateful for the WIA program and the assistance she received.
