Lima Ohio -
U.S. Air force Veteran Jill Schick finds herself in a classroom after serving our country. With two years of service, Schick came back home and worked jobs to help support her family. But the work was unfulfilling and the pay mediocre. So she decided to go back to school and fulfill her lifelong dream of becoming a nurse.
The government is helping Schick achieve her dream through a Jobs Retraining Assistance Program called V-RAP.
The year-long program is open to veterans ages 35 to 60. They must be trained for a high demand occupation such as nursing. The program will give veterans over $1,000 per month in assistance.
