With the helpful relationship of her case manager, Joan and WIA funding, Rhonda accomplished her goal. She completed the RN Program, passed her State Board Exam, and became gainfully employed as the Charge Nurse at a Care Facility in Rhinelander. Currently Rhonda has taken another step up the career ladder by doing contract work as a Ventilator Nurse and providing flu shots for a local pharmacy. Rhonda is earning over $36 per hour and providing a valuable service in her community.
My plan was to retire in four years and then volunteer for hospice until I couldn’t work anymore. Now my plan is to take this education and work at a higher level in social work in whatever practice I am able to work. Right now I have four viable possibilities to explore further. Two are in medical practice, one is home-based and one is education based. I am “working” all four leads and just waiting to see which door opens first.
Today, I am a successful truck driver for Mark’s Transportation. Not only do I like my job, but I am able to support my family financially.
