Erika made it through the first year of the RN program at Penn College, in spite of living with an abusive boyfriend, who yelled at her when she studied, kept her up all night before clinical days. However, that first year took two because due to his abusive behavior, she failed a class and had to wait to take it again. Erika should have graduated Nursing school with her Associates RN degree in May 2012. Unfortunately, that extra year depleted ALL of Erika's financial aid options and her unemployment, which is how she was able to go to school full-time. So, with no money, or income, Erika was forced to return to the workforce, and gave up her dream of becoming an RN. Recently, Erika was told about a grant opportunity that would allow her to complete her FINAL year of the RN program. But of course, yet another obstavcle has jumped in the way! The Penn College Nursing Department is requiring Erika to take a refresher course this summer, that will cost $1500. Failure to complete this course means she cannot be enrolled in the fall semester. The grant that will pay for her last year requires that she graduate by May 2014. The ONLY way to accomplish that is to start in August 2013. Sadly, Erika is unable to come up with the money to pay for the summer class. Leaving her abuser left her with nothing. She lives paycheck to paycheck, barely. Your generous donations will allow Erika to realize her dream of becoming a Psychiatric Nurse in the future.
