Brenton’s love for helping people started years ago as a home health aide. He worked for six years providing clients with personal care. His great leadership abilities presented him additional opportunities as a retail manager and police officer. He attended police academy, was hired, and worked as an officer for four and a half years. His love for nursing still endured. After making the decision to further his education, he received certification and worked as a CNA while pursuing his 4 year degree in Health Care Administration. A semester from completing the degree, he meet a graduate that recommended he attend Applied Technology Services Practical Nursing Program to become a Licensed Practical Nurse. Brenton successfully passed the entrance exam, competed against other applicants, and was accepted into the April 2011 class as a PN student.
“The instructors were amazing. They truly care about your success. The clinical experience provided a variety of disciplines and at great length. There were many places where I felt as if I was part of the facilities family,” he says. Brenton’s success as a practical nurse student allowed him to assist and tutor other students before and after class during the program which resulted in positive outcomes for him and other students.
After graduation, he successfully passed his state board examination and was hired by a local long term care facility where he worked as a CNA. Brenton plans to return to college, graduate with his BSN, and work in a hospital setting. His long range goal is to open a long-term care facility.
