27 Year LPN Veteran Advances Degree
After a long career as an LPN, Cecilia Portillo made the decision to go back to school and advance her education in an effort to move up the career ladder. “I have been an LPN for 20 years and knew that it was time to get my RN. I have procrastinated for many years but made a promise this year to start the program.”

Cecilia originally learned about The College Network from a friend and after doing her research decided to enroll in the online Associate of Science in Nursing degree program. “I have had many co-workers who did a self-study, go-at-your-own-pace program. They didn't have access to the online and phone support that The College Network provides. I can call anytime and someone always answers my questions.”

Cecilia admits that earning an advanced degree takes time and dedication. “It is hard sometimes. When you have young children and a full time job you think, ‘Wow, I just can't do it!’ but I have found that when I tell my family I need study time they are more than supportive of me and give me the time I need. I even have my children quiz me with the key words or the objectives.”

The support of her family, along with her dedication, is what is helping Cecilia be so successful in the online nursing degree program. Read more of Cecilia's inspiring story or call 1-800-395-1014 to learn how you can sign up to earn your advanced nursing degree.
