Alum, NDMU Class of 2017Entry-Level Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN)
I will use what I have learned at NDMU to help me be a leader in the nursing field. I will be able to become the confident and competent nurse, because of the opportunities and experiences NDMU has offered me.
By becoming a student-athlete at NDMU, I expanded my family; who are my teammates and coaches. For 3 months, we spend at least 12 hours a week with each other to play the one thing that we love: lacrosse. We bond and get to know each other during the season and create relationships that are unforgettable.
I was able to play with children in my AdvoCaring group and meet the wonderful teachers completely dedicated to them. The look in those children’s eyes when we had a health fair geared towards them is something I will never forget.
