Jewel applied for the Scholarship Program as a Mental Health Worker at North Philadelphia Health System, and was granted full time funding to attend LaSalle University’s Achieve Nursing Program in 2012. We are proud of Jewel’s accomplishment in graduating from LaSalle with her Bachelor’s in Nursing, passing the state boards on the first attempt, and now pursuing employment as a BSN. She has been offered employment in a psychiatric nursing position that will raise her former mental health wage of $18/hour to $30/hour; she is also considering a nursing position in a teaching hospital on a neurology floor.
