Julia's Story

My passion for nursing started when I took the Medical Careers 1 course in my sophomore year of high school. This was by far my favorite class all year and I averaged a 96 in that class. Considering this was my favorite class, I decided to take the Medical Careers 2 class my junior year. I am in this class right now and we go to a clinical setting every other Monday. Going to clinical is one of the things I look forward to every week. After the first couple of clinical sessions, I discovered I have a passion for nursing and learning about the medical field in general.

Attending NSLC Nursing will further educate me in the large topic of nursing. I feel that this program will put me ahead of the game regarding college. I would have more background experience as well. This would be a great opportunity to really get a grasp of what nursing actually is and how the nursing world operates. I would really love to learn more about nursing and medicine as much as I can. My dream is to pursue a career of being a nurse practitioner and I feel this program will help me significantly in pursuing my dream.

A Note from Ms. Gonyea, Julia's Coach

If it is something that Julia loves, she will go above and beyond what is required. I think when she sets her mind to do something, nothing can stop her. In the medical field, I think we need more individuals with characteristics like Julia. Attending NSLC Nursing will allow Julia to develop the necessary skillsets to further pursue her career in the medical field.
