Sarah Taylor, RN at Providence Hospice and Home Care, talks about her experience with a HEET program coordinated by the Training Fund and how the program and benefits impacted her life.
“I am Sarah Taylor. I have been a nurse 36 years. I have been at Providence Hospice 13 of those years. Graduated with my RN in 2010. I was an LPN for 25 years. I finally had decided to pursue getting my RN. I found so many obstacles trying to get into a program for a returning LPN. I had given up, that is where SEIU and Valley General Hospital in Monroe collaborated together to me and many others. The HEET grant was formed. HEET stands for health employees education training fund. I would not have gotten my RN without this fund. I am always so grateful for this. This fund helped me with books, tuition, tutors and even scrubs for clinicals. There was a group of 15 of us from Valley General in Monroe. We all have our RN and some have continued to obtain their BSN. I can not begin thank this program enough on it has changed and impacted my life. “
