DORS grad is now a nurse

When Damilola Adesanya moved to Indiana, she knew she wanted to go back to school. She had been attending college in Nigeria, but she wasn't able to transfer her credits from home. A friend recommended Christel House DORS, the adult high school. "I didn't want to go back to high school," she admits, "but let's give it a try." Today she's a nurse - and continuing her education.

Damilola started at DORS in 2018. “My goal was to go to college and have a career,” she says. She focused her efforts, taking dual-credit classes such as math and English through Ivy Tech Community College. Graduating DORS in 2019, Christel House offered Damilola support, providing help with college tuition. “I’ve always wanted to be in a medical field,” she says. Nursing was the best choice. She graduated in December 2021 from Ivy Tech with a nursing degree and was recruited to work at Eskenazi Health. Enrolling at IUPUI (Indiana University Purdue University Indianapolis) Damilola is continuing her studies with a goal of working in critical care. She is considering what she wants to do. “I have options – should I get my masters and become a nurse practitioner or go back to medical school?” She pauses and thinks about her choices and smiles. “I don’t want to stop learning.”
