The professors made me feel I was always in a safe environment. I can already feel doors opening for me as I continue in the nursing program. The impact we will have to the community is something I look forward to. Nursing school has changed my life completely.
- Jose Calderon Lopéz, Bachelor of Science in Nursing
I'm learning real world skills that I can apply immediately upon graduating. I will feel more prepared to hit the ground running as a new nurse grad. My other career is in the Air National Guard, and it is important to me to be prepared to place my service first. South College has been very supportive along the way.
