During Career and Technical Education Month in February, the New Jersey Council on County Vocational Technical Schools is highlighting successful graduates of the county’s 21 vocational technical schools.
Paige McMillen graduated from the Allied Health/Nursing program at Monmouth County Vocational School District in 2013. She attended Brookdale Community College and works as a patient care assistant on the COVID-19 unit at Monmouth Medical Southern Campus.
“The Vocational program prepared me to be a PCA at Monmouth Medical Southern Campus,” McMillen said “I learned basic bed side patient care that helped me fulfill my duties. Nothing could have prepared us for this pandemic, but the basic skills learned at MCVSD I use every day. So grateful for my experience at Monmouth County Vocational School.”
