Teresa Munoz Maya, a first-generation college student, recently graduated from the nursing program at Wilkes Community College in May 2018 and passed her NC boards at the end of May 2018. She will begin a new job as an RN in the perioperative unit at Forsyth Medical Center at the end of July 2018.
“I chose nursing as a career because there are so many different opportunities within the field; from working in nursing homes to hospitals and doctors’ offices. I have had a wonderful experience at Wilkes Community College. I plan to pursue a bachelor’s degree and possibly a master’s degree.”
