HCN Success Stories

Since my time as an Army medic, I have always enjoyed the idea of helping people, and I’ve always found the human body and medicine to be very fascinating. The medical field is constantly evolving. It’s scary and exciting all at once, and I haven’t found a job that can replicate the same feeling as a job in the medical field.

I chose Hondros College of Nursing because the school had few hurdles to jump through to get started. I know others (including my wife) who have gone to other schools and the lack of support even to get through the application process is insane. Hondros supported me throughout the whole process. My advisor, the entire support staff, financial aid, and instructors are all very helpful no matter what may be going on.

If you are interested in nursing school, it is important to make sure it’s the right time for you. Nursing school is a giant commitment. You will have to make a lot of sacrifices and be prepared to make them. You have to be prepared for how big of a change it will have on your life.

To succeed in school, I have to stay focused and disciplined. School takes priority, so I have to say no thank you or "pass" on doing other things in life while I’m in school. This is important to do this in order to dedicate the amount of time needed to be successful.
