What people say Heading link

Noor Bader

“As a student, I was fortunate to have clinical experiences in the ICU, which gave me a leg up in applying for my current job as an ICU nurse. My training prepared me to be a nurse leader and gave me the confidence to succeed in such a high-stress unit.”

Noor Bader, RN, Advocate Christ Medical Center  |  BSN '17
Thomas McClure

“My peers were some of the most brilliant, motivated people I have ever met. Nursing school is hard; your peers make it easier in a lot of ways. Study group is the key, and having people to unwind with helps you keep going.”

Thomas McClure, RN, Memorial Medical Center  |  BSN '18
