HCN Success Stories

I have always been fascinated by the human body and how it works, and I have always had a passion for science and helping people. I knew that a career in nursing would allow me to combine my love for science with my desire to help others, and that was incredibly appealing to me. I also have a strong desire to make a positive impact on the world and to do meaningful work that truly matters. Nursing provides me with the opportunity to care for others in their time of need and to make a difference in their lives. Whether it is providing comfort and support to a patient who is in pain or helping a family navigate a difficult diagnosis, I know that as a nurse, I will have the ability to truly change lives for the better.


Starting nursing school can be both exciting and daunting. As someone who has been through the experience, there are a few pieces of advice that I would like to offer to those who are embarking on this journey. I would advise you to stay organized. Nursing school can be very demanding, with a heavy workload and numerous assignments. Make sure to set aside time each day to study and complete your assignments. Try to stay on top of everything to avoid feeling overwhelmed.
