Meet Crystal

Workforce Challenge

Crystal is single and independent. She struggled with juggling two part-time jobs with conflicting schedules. She decided to pursue her BSN in order to make ends meet and be able to be on her own. She lived with roommates as she was not able to afford bills on her own and had to move multiple times and with different strangers who were not always accommodating to her through her training.

Workforce Solution

Through the financial and moral support received at the WFC she was able to persevere through the challenges and continue to move forward, knowing she was to fulfill her expectation to graduate and achieve her employment goal. Not only did she want to do so for herself, but she also was being held accountable by the WIOA program. She refused to fail. Despite the challenges, she maintained contact with her case manager and was able to complete her training on time.

Outcomes & Benefits

Although initially turned down by a department at her company, she persisted in retaking the NCLEX after failing. She then reapplied for a position that had been rescinded after she failed her NCLEX. She was then offered the job that paid 60% more than her best part-time job. She wrote, "Hope all is well and thank you SOOOOO much for all your help in my nursing journey. I really appreciate people like you caring to meet the needs of students like myself, supporting us through the challenging process of becoming a nurse!"
