Todd Kirkland - Mid-Del Technology Center
THEN: Todd Kirkland joined the Army Reserves to save up for upcoming education expenses. He knew he wanted to pursue a career in nursing and after two combat deployments to Iraq, he enrolled in Mid-Del Technology Center’s practical nursing program. Enroute to an LPN degree, Todd gained experience in both mental health and medical surgical hospital settings. The CareerTech training was a great introduction to the nursing profession, and allowed him to
- Enroll in the LPN to BSN program at the University of Oklahoma – Tulsa.
- Graduate from OU and go to work as a registered nurse.
- Continue his education in the family nurse practitioner master’s degree program.
NOW: A certified family nurse practitioner working for Warren Clinic Urgent Care in Broken Arrow, OK. The journey to his dream job took 12 years, but he says it was definitely worth the time and effort.
“This is the job I envisioned years ago when I was finishing high school.”
