Nora Jordan (Sanford Medical Center)
"In March 2009 I became a displaced worker as a result of layoffs from economic downturn. With the help of CEP, and, in particular, my case worker, Luann Thompson, I enrolled in The Displaced Worker Program & began college at NTC May 2009. I obtained certification as a CNA as a prerequisite to the Practical Nursing AAS degree. In July 2011, I graduated as a LPN, & went on to obtain an ADN as a RN May 2012. I will be starting my RN career July 30th at Sanford Bemidji Medical Center.
Luann, along with the staff at CEP partnered with me from Day 1 for a journey of success! This resource has provided me with the opportunity to obtain an education in a field that is viable. I am very excited to begin my nursing career in a field that is viable & ever-developing-- & most importantly to start giving back to my community, which has supported me every step of the way!"
