Eugene Sadiki

Program: WIIN Nursing

 Eugene Famba Sadiki’s journey as a nurse began before he finished high school in the Democratic Republic of the Congo. He survived being shot in wartime and separation from his wife, who believed he was dead. Half a world away from the Congo, Sadiki is continuing his path in nursing in the United States through the Workforce Improvement with Immigrant Nurses (WIIN) program at Clackamas Community College.

The WIIN program at CCC prepares experienced foreign-educated nurses living in the U.S. to enter the nursing workforce here and eases their transition into practice.  

Eugene arrived in the U.S. in 2009 after working as a nurse in his home country for more than 25 years.  He graduated from CCC’s WIIN program in December 2011 and plans to work in health administration, working with the elderly.

“It’s been a long road, but the WIIN Program has helped me very much – I have gained so much professionalism as a nurse.”
