Minerva from Tucson, AZ

I'm ready to become a nurse! I just need a laptop to complete my RN program.

With a laptop I won't have to visit the library during its limited hours. I'll be able to become a nurse while caring for my three children.

My need and situation

I am a single mother of three. I am currently pursuing a nursing degree which I am just beginning the program for the RN program.

My goals are to finish the Associate RN program in these next two years. I will be pursuing the BSN and obtain a job in my field of study once I complete the degree. I want to be in a field where I can be compassionate and help people.

I need a laptop for my studies. I currently do not have a computer at home and being at the library all the time will be difficult because of work and school schedules.

Meeting this need will help me because I will be able to better manage my time to devote to my studies and all of my responsibilities. I appreciate any assistance that I get.

Validated by Byron from Pima County One Stop Career Center (What does this mean?)

Minerva came through Arizona @ Work in order to receive assistance for her Nursing degree program this year. She has gone through our process and has been approved for tuition assistance. This is her first step in her career goal. Obtaining this laptop will help her out tremendously. Her employer is working around her school schedule but she doesn't have the time to travel back and forth to the library, work and home. Also, the library is not open 24/7 so she has to stress about making it there. Minerva is very passionate about her career and by removing this barrier, she will have one less thing to worry about.
