Jessica is a refugee from Burma. She has been here for less than 5 years and her dream is to become a Nurse in the US. CPACS helped her complete her credential evaluation and now she is in the process of enrolling into a Nursing Program at a local technical school. Once she is enrolled, the staff and program will support her tuition payment, books, and supplies to ensure she is successful in the program. We look forward to supporting her success as she starts her journey to becoming a Nurse.

            Our team provides one-on-one support throughout the process from enrollment to job search after graduation. Participants in the program will be connected to supporting mentors, those who are in the same career. We currently have limited slots.
