Employee testimonial

Jasmin's story

"It has been an amazing journey for me at Children’s Mercy! I have served as a volunteer; held two internships with this organization; started full-time employment as a Care Assistant; and now I’m a Staff Nurse in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit.

I obtained by nursing degree thanks to the tuition assistance program. My next step will be to begin studying for my master’s degree.

The tuition assistance program is very generous and such an amazing opportunity for our CM employees. I am grateful that I work for an organization that values our growth and development!"
