Duff said when she toured TCT, Pre-Nursing seemed like a perfect fit.
“My favorite part of the Pre-Nursing program is all of the hands-on activities we do in class,” Duff said. “I like it a lot.”
In addition to being a member of the Pre-Nursing program, Duff remains active. She is a member of the National Honor Society, Beta Club, HOSA, and a Copan High School FFA member. She also volunteers at her church in the early child care class, helps pass out food to those in need, and delivers clothes to the less fortunate.
“Felicite is such a pleasure to have in class,” said Karen Hays, Tri County Tech Pre-Nursing Instructor. “I love her outgoing personality, and she is a friend to everyone. She is very intelligent, funny, and keeps me on my toes.”
Upon graduation, Duff would like to attend college and study pediatrics or psychology.
Adult Student of the Month
Tri County Tech student, Victoria Stover, was recently named the Downtown Kiwanis Club’s Adult Student of the Month for February, Stover, a Skiatook resident, is currently enrolled in the Licenced Practical Nursing program at TCT and will graduate from TCT in May 2021.
“My favorite part of the LPN program is the clinicals we have been able to go on,” Stover said. “I love the hands-on experiences and skills we get to perform.”
Stover said she has been interested in the nursing field since 2001, and she has a love for her career.
“What makes me so excited about my job is helping others,” Stover said. “Not only helping patients but being able to advocate for them, especially when they can’t advocate for themselves.”
In addition to being a member of the LPN program, Stover is a board member for patients who have Cushing’s and Addison’s disease, and mentors patients and survivors with rare conditions. She also loves spending time with and training her dogs.
“Victoria is an excellent example of the qualities that make a great nurse,” said Kebi Allen, Licensed Practical Nursing Instructor. “She is a hard worker, is able to crucially think through complex patient scenarios, is compassionate, and always exhibits professionalism.”
Upon graduation, Stover would like to go back into correctional nursing.
