As a high school dropout and fast food manager, Mike Bland thought his dream of being a nurse was out of reach. But, at age 38, Mike decided to pursue nursing. Earning his GED® test credential gave Mike the momentum he needed to enroll at New River Community College. He earned his Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA) certification and found a job at the Pulaski Health and Rehabilitation Center. Now, with the support of his wife and daughters, Mike is completing the practical nursing program with the goal of becoming a registered nurse. Mike hopes his success will encourage others to focus and achieve their dreams.
