A Success Story

Jennifer Ray, a dedicated nurse at Cape Fear Valley Health System, shares her experience with the Tuition Reimbursement Program:

"The tuition reimbursement program was an integral part of me receiving higher education. Keeping my career goals in mind, I knew I wanted to further my education to better prepare me for a leadership role. The program allowed me to focus on classes and studying rather than the cost of tuition and books. The support I received kept me engaged and committed to the health system and allowed for development opportunities. The program allowed me to obtain both my Bachelor of Science in Nursing as well as my Master of Science in Nursing in Healthcare Informatics,” Ray said.

“If I had any advice to give others considering participating in the program, it would be to do it. You will never know everything, and education is so important in a professional’s life and career for advancement. Taking advantage of the tuition reimbursement program was one of the smartest moves during my career here with Cape Fear Valley Health."
