Trisha White

Trisha White says that she didn’t transition from high school to being a college student. “I started college late in life and as a single mother.”

She chose Vermont Tech because of the success rate and that the college was close to home. “My classes are tough but really do a good job of teaching you what you need to know.”

Trisha has always been into nursing. “I’ve been an LNA for 9 years so I know nothing else. I’ve worked along side of some pretty incredible human beings.”

The resources that helped Trisha into college included her relationship with her employer, “they have worked with me and offered a small scholarship.”

“My goal is to go into the ADN program, eventually going for my bachelor degree. I plan on building my experience at Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center. My career is definitely one of my top passions, and being a mother is my other. I eventually want to travel more, maybe take my career across seas.”

Trisha’s advice to incoming students is, “to make school a priority. You can’t do it all, don’t hesitate to ask for help. Don’t be afraid to let the dishes pile up, and the laundry go unfolded. It will be there always, the goal right now is to graduate school.”
