I started out my career working in an Emergency Room as an EMT. After working there for about 4 years, I decided to take a job at Jimmy John’s. I worked my way up the ladder to become a District Manager. After some time, I knew I had to make a career change. So, I chose Hondros College of Nursing to help me make that change.
I wanted to do something that I already had some sort of foundation in. That’s why I got into nursing. After knowing that I enjoyed working in the ER, it was a no-brainer to go back to school for nursing.
The attention I was given from when I submitted an application all the way to how comforting the instructors were at the beginning of the term was amazing. Now, as I balance my classes with my work schedule, I keep an open line of communication with my instructors. That’s how I succeed.
If you want to get into nursing school, make sure you’re ready to give it 100 percent. Make sure all of your ducks are in a row prior to starting. It goes very quickly, and you don’t want to be dealing with things in the middle that could have been avoided before starting classes.
