I choose UNCP’s Nursing Program because I was able to see the impact the instructors had on my dad during his time in the nursing program.  Watching him over his two year journey, I was able to see first-hand what an excellent program UNCP offers to their students.  My experience at UNCP has allowed me to grow and improve as a student nurse with the outstanding support of the faculty and staff throughout each course and my clinical experiences.  The nursing program provides a small student-faculty ratio allowing the nursing school journey to be a meaningful and memorable experience.   

My most impacting moment was a result of Hurricane Matthew.  During this time, I was in the Community Nursing course which required a group project that focused on those affected by Hurricane Matthew.  This experience taught me the importance of nurses during a crisis situation and the support each individual nurse can provide to their local community.   

I am looking forward to graduation and becoming a UNCP alumni with the continued support of UNCP’s nursing program.
