“The staff were extremely helpful and nothing but respectful towards me. They were my extra boost when I needed it.” -Brayann Hudgens, WorkOne Customer
Brayann Hudgens’ dream had always been becoming a Registered Nurse in wound care. After high school she wanted to start working towards her dream by pursuing the appropriate education to get her Associates Degree in Nursing. Finding an education program that suited her best was only half the battle. Along with that, she soon found out that the financial burden of going through education was more than she expected while supporting herself. Hudgens needed help. She was already familiar with WorkOne as she was involved in their youth programs while still in high school. Always knowing that assistance was there when she needed it, she kept in touch.
Hudgens received three years of career counseling from WorkOne both during and after she completed her education for nursing. While she was working towards her degree she received financial assistance, tutoring, and supportive services to help her stay on track for graduation. She graduated from Ancilla College with an Associate of Science in Nursing. She took and passed the NCLEX RN exam obtaining her RN license just one month after graduation. Next, staff and Hudgens worked together on revising her resume, improving her interviewing skills, and job searching.
After applying for and attaching her resume to open positions over several job search platforms, Hudgens fulfilled her dream of being an RN in wound care one month after she earned her RN license. She is happily working fro Healogics as they go through the process of opening a new wound care center clinic at the La Porte Hospital.
