Danielle enrolled in the MY TURN program in January 2018. A high school graduate, she was determined to continue her education, but two young daughters and managing her life on her own left her with little time to devote to post-secondary education. Working with MY TURN, Danielle realized that her goals were absolutely within her reach. Hard-working and motivated, Danielle hit the ground running and on March 1, 2018, began the Nurse Assistant Training Program at the American Red Cross in Leominster. After 4.5 weeks of an intense classroom and clinical experience, Danielle graduated from the program receiving awards for both perfect attendance and honor roll. Danielle did not waste time putting her newly found skills to use. In April 2018 Danielle began full-time employment as a nurse assistant at Oakdale Rehabilitation Center in West Boylston, MA, a division of Oriole Health Care Centers. In May 2018, Danielle completed and passed the Department of Public Health’s Nurse Assistant Exam and received her nurse assistant certification/license. Danielle is currently enjoying her employment and the benefits that have come along with it. Danielle’s plan moving forward is to enroll in the accelerated Practical Nursing Program at Montachusett Regional Vocational High School’s School of Continuing Education for the Fall 2019 semester.
