PIKEVILLE — Kayla Bryant Tuers, a graduate from the Pikeville Campus, loves that she can support her family while helping others in her work as a registered nurse at Pikeville Medical Center. She came to National College right out of high school and completed the nursing program in November of 2011.
In addition to her job, Kayla is also pursuing a bachelor’s in nursing through an online program with Chamberlain College of Nursing and she is on track to finish in February of 2013. “Almost all of my credits transferred and many of my classes at National in the nursing field prepared me immensely for Chamberlain,” Kayla said. After earning her bachelor’s degree she plans to apply to the midwifery program at Frontier School of Nursing in Hyden, Kentucky. “I hope to get into that program and become a certified nurse midwife as well as a women’s health practitioner,” she explained.
Kayla said that her degree from National and her new career in nursing have had a huge impact on her family. “I work at a great facility and my family is in a much better place now. This year we have bought our first home!” she said with high hopes for her future.
