“Jersey College not only provided hope and helped me reach my goals, but has also prepared me for my career by providing me with the experience and the knowledge I need to serve and advocate for my patients."

“I was twenty-two years old when I decided that I wanted to become a nurse. I’ve been surrounded by nurses for years. My grandmother, my mother, my aunt and my best friend are nurses. After expressing my goals and interest, they suggested that I looked into nursing. I remember searching for nursing programs near me and being faced with long two year waiting lists. The wait made me feel discouraged and I began to lose hope in meeting my goals to become a nurse. A couple years later my mother found out about Jersey College’s Professional Nursing program, where she enrolled and successfully graduated. The support that she received from the staff and the experience that she gained, made me feel confident enough to enroll in the Practical Nursing program. On my first day of clinical I fell in love with the profession. The new experience made me feel excited and I was eager to learn more. Throughout the program I learned so much about patient care and advocating for my patients.

My most memorable moment throughout the program was when I passed the Progression Exam on the first try. It was at the moment that I realize that I knew more than I thought I knew. There were so many resources throughout the program. There were Fridays designated for students that needed additional help. There’s a great student lounge, a spacious computer lab, and an outstanding simulation lab that allows students to practice and perfect their skills before being placed in a real life environment. My favorite student resource is the computer lab. I have the opportunity to explore the library online and complete my assignments.

The program wasn’t easy, but it was worth it. After completing the program I felt accomplished. I worked so hard, and my hard work did pay off. My determination contributed to my success. I refused to give up; there were many long nights of studying. Answering Prep U questions online were the most helpful study habits for me. My instructors made a major impact on my education. Ms.Wheeler made sure I understood the information, Mr.Dufresne challenged me, Mrs.Quinn was very patient with me and Mrs.Hill refused to let me give up.

I would recommend Jersey College to others because this college has a team of supporters that is compassionate and understanding. They are here for you and they are full of knowledge. My advice for future students is to ask questions. The staff is full of answers. Jersey College is surrounded with staff members that are knowledgeable and helpful; they are always more than willing to help. If you don’t understand a subject ask every instructor until you find an instructor that can explain it in a way that you will understand. Use your resources. The library has a variety of books with great explanations, the computer lab has internet and a printer that you can use to print out the power points, and there’s a student lounge that you can use to study with your classmates. Jersey College not only provided hope and helped me reach my goals, but has also prepared me for my career by providing me with the experience and the knowledge I need to serve and advocate for my patients.”
