EdUp Career Schools “The Scoop – “Who Said I Can’t?” with Nicole Laborde
Hold onto your seats because you’re about to be blown away. Today, I had the honor of speaking to Nicole Laborde, Owner and Founder of Ideal School of Allied Healthcare and Ideal Home Care Services. Nicole came here from Haiti and the age of 15 years old, alone with a suitcase, dream and a vision.
Nicole enrolled herself in High School, then afterwards a Home Health Aide program. Later on she received her Bachelors degree in Nursing where she worked as a bedside nurse at Stonybrook University. Seeing the need for healthcare workers is what inspired her to open up her own home care agency, “Ideal Home Care Services.”
This is where her vision started to come to life. She realized that there was a huge shortage in people who were properly trained in this industry, which then led her to open her own training school, “Ideal School of Allied Healthcare.” Talk about perseverance, drive and passion.
Since then, Nicole has won several awards for her hard work and dedication including the Business Hall of Fame, Top 100 Healthcare Leaders Award and Caribbean Life Impact Award, just to name a few. She was also the 2021 Honoree for honoring Healthcare heroes and was featured on Fox 5 “Good Day Street Talk” for the amazing work she has done in the community.
Nicole has achieved so much more, but if you want to learn more, take a listen AND learn more by logging onto Ideal School of Allied Healthcare.
