Meet Kevin

Workforce Challenge

At time of enrollment Kevin was a recently separated veteran with a service connected disability, who worked odd jobs since his retirement. Kevin decided to pursue his BSN to increase his marketability and wage potential. At time of application he had a job as a driver, but he had to leave this job in order to focus in school as the accelerated program is very intense. Since he didn’t qualify for financial aid due a previous degree, he was in desperate need of assistance.

Workforce Solution

Kevin enrolled in WIOA and VWIP and received tuition assistance from both programs while he used some of his GI Bill to supplement his income.

Outcomes & Benefits

Kevin obtained his BSN, and soon after receiving his RN license he secured full time employment as RN with a 60% pay increase from his wage at time of enrollment.
