Janalee Outhenthapanya, LPN

"I worked for a company for 26 years and when they went out of business I wasn't sure what I was going to do. I looked into the EITC nursing program and decided to go for it. I received an excellent education and look forward to a career as a nurse. I'm 47 and I'm proof you are never too old to learn!"
