A client came into Virginia Career Works-Harrisonburg, hoping to obtain training and employment as a Certified Nurse Aide. Unable to pay for the course herself, she sought support from the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act.
She was a low-income adult single parent, and since entering the program, she has been steadily working on attaining her CNA licensure. Despite managing her kid’s busy schedules and all of the demands that come with being a single parent, she has successfully completed her training and is one step closer to testing, licensure, and a more secure financial future for her family through her involvement with the WIOA program.
After she obtains her license, the specialists at Virginia Career Works will assist her in Resume Creation and Job Search, so that she can obtain full time employment in the field that she has always wanted to work in. She hopes to continue pursuing healthcare education upon completing her CNA license.
