For as long as I can remember, I have always been interested in the medical field. When I was growing up, I was always fascinated by medical shows. I also really like helping people. I currently work as a dialysis technician and am very interested in that field. As a technician, I am involved more with my patient’s actual dialysis treatment. As a nurse, I would play more of an active role in their care.

Hondros College of Nursing was a good fit for me because it was close to home. The Direct Entry ADN Option allowed me to use my bachelor’s degree to get ahead and become an RN in a few as 15 months. As a nurse, I would be able to adjust dialysis prescriptions, administer medications and help my patients in even more ways. I love the patient care aspect. That’s why I decided to get my ADN.

During the admissions process, the staff and faculty were very responsive and kind. They always had time for my questions. They were also very supportive. I could tell they really care about you.

If you are a prospective student and you are thinking about nursing school, keep in mind you have to be dedicated to studying. It is hard to go to work, take care of your family and have time for school. I had to learn had to manage my time to make it all work. You are going to have to sacrifice some time, but it will be worth it in the end.
