Nursing student ready to serve
Ijeoma, also known as Precious, joined the #NCWorks #NextGen program in February of 2021 as a referral from the NCWorks NextGen program in Raleigh, NC. Precious was a high school graduate from Northern High School with an interest in the #healthcare field. She is a very ambitious, purpose driven young lady who needed financial assistance to accomplish her goal. She was also looking for career guidance, support and accountability.
After providing Precious with a list of Nurse Aid training programs, she decided to go with Durham Technical Community College where she successfully completed the program. Precious was provided additional financial support to pay for the National Nurse Aide Assessment Exam and she has successfully passed the written exam. She is scheduled to take the second part of the exam on September 27, 2021. Once Precious has successfully passed both exams, she will become certified. She has been offered full-time employment at Duke Hospital with a start date of October 11, 2021.
