Program Details

Sierra heard about the Livingston Workforce Services from a friend.  She was pursuing the Radiography field and looking for scholarship opportunities since she only worked part time on the weekends as a waitress.  She had just been accepted into the program at the local college, but she was also interested in getting her foot in the door with some internship opportunities in the radiography field.  Sierra was then placed in a “work experience” in the radiology department at OSF.  She worked there six months and used her experience to help her progress through the program.  She graduated with her Radiography degree and soon passed her certification exam.  She now works in the radiology department at the hospital closest to her home.
