You're welcome, world, because before too long Jenelle Evans could be performing minor surgery on you. This Teen Mom 2 star just happens to be super smart, and she's less than a year away from graduating tech school!

Jenelle already has half of her Associate’s in arts thanks to a brief stint at Cape Fear Community College where she majored in Film Studies. Unfortunately, she dropped out in 2012 and transferred to Miller-Motte Tech College's Surgical Assistant Program.

Jenelle's road to surgical assisting has been a long one, but it looks like she'll complete the program as soon as this coming January. Wow, how amazing — all her hard work has definitely paid off!

Even better? Jenelle isn't done with her education, and plans to get licensed as a nurse! "Eventually I will be licensed as well, I'm going to go back for school for nursing," she explained to a curious fan.

Can you believe how driven Jenelle is? We're not sure how she'll find time to get her nursing degree what with taking care of a newborn baby (not to mention her first son, Jace), but several of her fellow Teen Mom stars have managed to juggle work and parenting.  We're sure Jenelle will be no different!

Are you surprised that Jenelle has come so far? Take it to the comments and wish her congratulations!
