The challenge of the courses and my subsequent success was very rewarding. I received my training as a registered nurse, something I had always wanted to pursue. The teachers were knowledgeable and helpful in answering questions. I met some wonderfully talented students and nurses. I learned there's nothing you cannot do if you work hard.
