Making a Dream Come True

Yes You Can Return to College

Tanya always wanted to be a nurse.


The Returner Who Nailed Perfect Grades

I moved to the United States 18 years ago from the Ukraine and started my U.S. education in ninth grade. At that time, I didn’t think higher education would be an option because I had so many adjustments to make in my new life. Soon after high school I got married and gave birth to two adorable children.

Ever since I was a little girl I wanted to be a nurse and now I am making that happen. Going back to school after 10 years was a little tough, but I pushed through it and finished with a GPA of 4.0. Now I’m about to complete Chemeketa’s nursing degree.
