Guiding the Way, Thanks to Career Navigators

My name is Krystle Stallings. I recently completed the LPN program at First Coast Technical College with the help of Career Navigators.

Growing up I’ve always wanted to be a nurse, so when I graduated I started at St. Johns River State College doing my prerequisites for the RN program, but ran into financial strains at home. That’s when I applied to First Coast for LPN. But I found out I wouldn’t be receiving any financial aid help, and I didn’t know how I was ever going to be able to afford it until the admissions department introduced me to Career Navigators.

Career Navigators has helped me in so many ways that has made going to school a little easier not having the financial struggles of paying the full amount of tuition, supplying gas cards, and giving incentive that has helped out while being in the program. The LPN program is a very intense and fast paced program, and Career Navigators would call and check and see how we were doing and always motivating me to keeping going.

With the support of my family, friends, and Career Navigators, I made it to the end of the program and finished with good grades. I just recently took my state exam and obtained my LPN license. I have started working at Palatka Health Care Center PRN; therefore, I work as needed. I have also started working with the Clay County Sheriff office as a detention nurse.

I’m grateful that Career Navigators was there to help me with this journey and they see it through till the very end.
