She was accepted into Mid Florida Community Services Family Self-Sufficiency Program who helped Melissa with books for her classes, the application for the state exam, and the NCLEX exam. Melissa passed the NCLEX exam and gained full-time employment with benefits as a Registered Nurse and is now earning a livable wage.
“Last fall my husband was diagnosed with End Stage Renal disease. We had no idea what was in store for us. He could not work anymore and he was our breadwinner while I attended Nursing school to become a Registered Nurse. We could have lost everything if it wasn’t for organizations like Mid Florida Community Services. If it wasn’t for them I do not know how we would have made it. A year later and I’m now in the beginning of my career as a Registered Nurse. Thank you (Kacee and thank you Mid Florida) for all that you do for families in need.”
