Featured Success Story

When Carley enrolled in early 2018, she told staff that it was her dream to earn her Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) at the University of Maine at Fort Kent (UMFK).   Carley told staff that she knew that going to college and parenting would be hard but that she had family close to support her. Staff also assisted her by providing work supports for her transportation, childcare, and funding towards her final semester in school.  While completing her preceptorship at Northern Maine Medical Center last fall, Carley was offered a nursing position pending her degree.   In December 2020, Carley completed her nursing degree with a 3.75-grade point average and started full-time work as a Registered Nurse at Northern Maine Medical Center with a starting wage of $26.50 an hour.  She recently thanked the staff for helping to make her dreams come true.
