The greatest lesson I've learned is to never procrastinate to finish work or study for a test because you will end up regretting it in the end.

What are your current career goals?

Graduating with my BSN, and begin working as an RN on the Mother-Baby unit at Women’s and Children’s Hospital.

 

How has the college experience influenced or changed your life?  

This experience has made me stronger as a person.  It has challenged my confidence in myself, which I feel has grown significantly since starting school at the University of Charleston.

 

What is your ultimate goal for the future?  

My goal is to graduate and be a successful registered nurse.
