Student Success Story

Medical Student Challenges Status Quo
Brianna is not one to dwell on the adversity she faces. Witnessing some members of her family make unproductive life choices has fueled her determination to graduate college and make a better life for herself.
Brianna is currently enrolled in her third ROP course, Medical Nursing Careers Internship. Medical Nursing Careers Internship is an introductory course that prepares students for a career as a nurse's assistant and provides students with hands-on experience through an internship at a local hospital.
It would have been easy for someone in Brianna's situation to go along with the status quo. Instead, Brianna used her education with ROP as a stepping stone to explore the career of her dreams. The hands-on learning experience and practical skills she gained in the Medical Nursing Careers and Emergency Medical Responder courses, have her well on her way to achieving her career goal of becoming a Pediatric Nurse.
