Student Success Story
Submitted By: Riverside County Office of Education CTE
Melissa was a single mother of three children that started taking classes to become a nursing assistant in the fall of 2012. At the time she was struggling financially and knew she needed to gain training and education that would help her find a career that could support her family.
Before finishing her first class, Melissa knew she wanted to further her education in the nursing field. Melissa talked with her instructor about the classes needed to become a Licensed Vocational Nurse. After successfully completing her nursing assistant class in December 2012, she enrolled at Beaumont Adult School in January 2013.
Melissa is now in her second semester of the LVN program and is doing well. She is working part time as a nursing assistant while attending classes.
