Rachel Morris lives in Yerington, Nev., where she works as a CNA at South Lyon Medical Center. She currently attends WNC, where she is taking her general education and prerequisite courses to become a Registered Nurse. After nursing school, Rachel plans to continue her education to become a Certified Registered Nurse anesthetist.
Growing up, Rachel did not think college was in the realm of possibilities due to financial barriers. However, with her dreams of becoming a nurse in mind, she pushes herself to find ways to make college possible. She works full time, commutes an hour and a half each way to take classes and has completed many scholarship applications to make her dreams a reality. All of her hard work is paying off!
