On a quest for more knowledge, Case Manager Tehren Esparza is heading back to class to get her Bachelor of Nursing degree. It’s all possible thanks to her ambition and PMMA’s Employee Education Assistance Fund.
“I’m using the scholarship to get my Bachelor of Nursing. It’s been helpful to further my degree because I was waiting to be able to go on and get it. I had a baby in March 2018, so my husband and I have had a lot going on. Going back to school wasn’t a possibility at that time,” said Tehren.
Now, the time is right. Tehren started classes in June and should have her degree completed next year. While the diploma won’t change what she’s doing, it will change how she’s doing it.
“I want to continue on as a case manager, but I want more knowledge. A bachelor’s in nursing gives me more knowledge in leadership and teamwork – I thought it would help me continue to do my job better,” said Tehren.
When she’s not working in our community or hitting the books, Tehren enjoys hanging out with her husband, Alonso, their daughter, and their parents.
