Moving up the ladder through KHPOP

Workforce Challenge

Heidi is a single mother of 1 child. She came into our program after she completed her LPN and wanted to complete the RN so she could be self sufficient and provide for her child. Heidi qualified for the KHPOP program through the referral of her case manager at DCF.

Workforce Solution

Heidi was enrolled into the KHPOP program so she could complete her RN degree. Along with her Pell grant, the KHPOP program was able to assist her with support services which included child care so Heidi could complete her program successfully. Heidi's career coach was also of great value to her while she was in the program.

Outcomes & Benefits

Heidi completed the RN program with a high B average. She took her state nursing exam and passed. Heidi is currently working at a nursing home in her home town full time while she is pursuing her BSN as time allows her to. Heidi was thankful for everything the WIA program did for her.
