Leap of Faith Leads to New Career



Oct 28, 2015

When Charlie Meuth was last featured in the National News (read his story here), he had taken a leap of faith and moved across the country after accepting a friend’s offer to provide him with a place to live while he earned his nursing degree at the Pikeville Campus. “It was the most grown-up decision that I’ve ever made in my life and the best thing that I could have done for myself,” he stated as he reflected on the last two years.

After graduating from ANU and becoming licensed as an RN, Charlie was recently hired to work on the cardiac wing of Pikeville Medical Center (PMC), where he had performed his clinical rotations. “It’s life-changing for me,” he said of his new career which has brought him both financial stability and personal fulfillment. “It’s just something that I’ve enjoyed doing. The patient interaction that I get being on a floor works out for me.”

“It was the most grown-up decision that I've ever made in my life and the best thing that I could have done for myself.”

Charlie has found that the ANU nursing program is well-respected by the medical professionals at PMC, as well as by his patients. “This school, as far as nursing goes, has a very good name,” he explained. “Patients will tell you.”

His ultimate goal is to one day work in oncology, and he’d also like to continue his education and earn his bachelor’s degree in nursing. But for now, Charlie’s enjoying putting the solid foundation of knowledge and skills that he gained at ANU to work. “Any education you get, they can’t take it away from you,” he shared.
