I know the support I have received will continue as I progress through my second program at NTC next semester. After that I’ll head to Marian college to complete my double major in Psychology and Social Work.

From long study sessions to celebrating each small victory along the way, this was definitely a team effort. The bond I have created with my fellow nursing students is one of the best parts of this journey.
