HCN Success Stories

A career in nursing is the best way for me to make a difference in other people's lives because it combines my natural empathy, compassion for others, and my desire to help people. I felt like this career is my natural calling and I could not see myself doing anything else. My experience as a nurse aide and interactions with previous patients I've cared for over the past three years had a big impact on me pursuing nursing as a career. Last, my daughter is a big motivator for me to finish this program. The only thing she has seen since she's been in the world is me being her mother and a student. I want to show her that anything is possible when you work hard.

I am new to this state and was researching different schools in the area when I came across Hondros College of Nursing. I attended an information session and was impressed with the content I received. This prompted me to continue with the admissions process. The admissions process was seamless and the staff was very helpful and eager to help me every step of the way. My professors and other faculty have all been kind and helpful, they want to see us all succeed.

My advice for someone considering nursing school is to be ready to dedicate most of your time to your studies for the duration of the program. Know that every day may not be a good day, but you must remember why you're doing it. In the end, you will be able to reap the benefits of all your hard work. I want first-time mothers like me to know that they can be successful in nursing school, although it may be a little harder. Developing a strong support system will carry you through your time in school. As well as finding study groups and utilizing all the resources provided to us.
