Gerald was in a bad place. As he finished completing his BSN, he found himself facing financial hardship and uncertainty—it could have been the end of the road for him. But he knew that he couldn't call it quits, and decided that he would sacrifice everything to get to where he wanted to go.
A year and a half ago, as he began working as an RN and searching for resources to help "dig him out of the hole," he found Medgeeks. As with any program, Gerald approached it with healthy skepticism, wondering if it really would help him thrive as a provider. He did his research and decided that this was exactly what he needed: a community of people and a treasure trove of resources that would both support him and challenge him to improve.
What better way to use money than to invest in yourself?
He knew that he would be better equipped to help his patients and community if he became a practitioner, so he started his journey to become an NP while working two job. With the help of Medgeeks, he found that he was able to stay ahead of the curve and "think like a provider."
Gerald knows what it takes to be part of the 1%, to persist when others quit and to have the courage to take the next step even when it feels like it's the end of the road. And he also knows that it can't be done alone. With the help of the community and resources he's found with us, he's been able to do what once felt impossible.
You can get to where you want to be. There key to success isn't a secret--it's out in the open for anyone who's willing to reach for it. Know your resources, surround yourself with a community that cares, and most importantly, always take the next step.
