The reason I chose UNCP’s nursing department is because of the reputation they uphold.  Compared to other nursing programs, UNCP has one of the highest passing rates for NCCLEX and the professors have a reputation throughout the community for caring for their students and providing education and knowledge that we are able to utilize throughout our nursing practice.

My most enjoyable experience in the program is actually going out into the clinical sites, working with clients, and providing client centered education while utilizing evidence based practice research.  Knowing that you have provided your client with essential education that can improve their lifestyle to enhance their quality of life.

Why I chose UNCP's Nursing Program:

I chose UNCP's Nursing Program because the nursing faculty were very helpful and cared about my future as a nurse. The nursing faculty at UNCP go above and beyond to help me reach my full potential as a nursing student, to help me think as a nurse, and prepare me for the nursing field. UNCP has a great clinical lab setting and an educated nursing staff that is always there to help. 

My most impacting moment was speaking to the freshman and sophomore class in Cypress Hall this semester. As a freshman and sophomore pursuing nursing, I would have appreciated a nursing student's perspective of the program. I enjoyed speaking to the freshman and sophomore class because I was able to inform and encourage them about nursing and the nursing program. I believe the students left the event with insight of the nursing program and what to expect. I would love to speak again.
