MSC Success Story
My family and I relocated to the Parkersburg area in, June of 2001, from Charleston, West Virginia. For many years I had taught Preschool in Charleston. After our move I decided I wanted a change in my career life and decided to go back to school and pursue a career in the medical area. I chose Mountain State College as my choice. The friendly staff, administration and students welcomed me with open arms into their family unit. I quickly felt right at home and was challenged, as well as encouraged by my instructors and staff.
I graduated with my two year Associates Degree in Medical Assisting on a Saturday in July of 2004 and began LPN school the following Monday. Four of my fellow classmates at Mountain State College joined me at Wood County School of Practical Nursing, and we proudly graduated in 2005. I was so proud and honored to have some of my instructors, as well as staff, from Mountain State College attend my graduation from LPN school. I worked for a couple of years as an LPN and then school called my name again. I enrolled at Mountain State University in the LPN- BSN Nursing program.
While I was in LPN/BSN school I was asked to join the staff at Mountain State College, as an instructor. Again the school that I had loved and admired for years had again opened their arms to me. I graduated from RN/BSN school in October of 2010. It was one of the proudest days of my life. I am currently teaching at a job that I love, with people that I cherish and admire and with students that I now encourage. Take it from one who has gone full circle. You can do and pursue anything that you put your mind to.
