What make’s Pembroke’s nursing department unique is that faculty takes the time to personally get to know you not only as a student, but as an individual as well. Knowing that I was not just another student made me feel welcomed into the program and that my education would be individualized. I wanted to be part of a program that not only cared for their students during college, but after graduation and into their career as well. This is exactly what Pembroke had to offer, which is exemplified by the high NCLEX pass rate and post- grad employment rates.

My most impacting memory in the program was creating the mentorship program for the junior and senior students in ANS. I wanted to make the two classes more interactive and create the opportunity to provide guidance and support for students. Seeing the two classes come together to help each other out and do things outside of class and clinical helped remind everyone that we are all in this together and we can get through any challenge with each other’s support.
