Elizabeth was a former waitress with a high school diploma who wanted to achieve more in her life.  She learned about the Workforce Investment Board through a friend and visited the High Desert America’s Job Center of California.  There she attended soft skill workshops, received motivational guidance, supportive services and employment opportunities.

Elizabeth was also provided with testing fees, transportation assistance and books to help her complete the registered nursing program.

As a result, Elizabeth successfully completed two associate of science degrees and passed the National Council Licensure Examination which has allowed her to be employed as a registered nurse earning $29 an hour.
