My Experience in the Nursing Program at St. Ambrose with Emily
The following is an computer-generated summary of the video transcript.
Hi, my name is Emily and I'm a senior nursing major here at ST Ambrose University. I'm now a senior and will be graduating next May in 2022 which is super exciting. So when I was a senior in high school and looking for a place to come to college, I knew that I wanted to go somewhere where I can be involved in a lot of different things, make new friends and meet a lot of new people um and just go to a school that had a really great sense of community and I found all of those things here at Ambrose and it definitely did not disappoint and only got better throughout my four years here. Another thing that led me to ST Ambrose University, was there awesome nursing program. So my cohort right now has about 35 other students in it. Being that small, we get such personal direct attention from our teachers. It really does make such a huge difference when you're in class and you raise your hand and your teacher can calling you by name and they kind of know what you need as a student and what they need to do as a teacher to help you succeed and all of your teachers just really will push you to succeed. Even taking my prerequisite courses before I was officially started in the nursing program here in my junior year, even freshman and sophomore year from my Jenna, it's all of my teachers knew my name where I was from and just little things about me that helped keep me engaged in the lessons and have them a little bit more involved. Um, as a professor too, which is just awesome that we're able to have those personal relationships with our teachers here. So I know at our nursing building, the center for health science education, um, that is brand new. We have new mannequins and equipment to practice on. We have a beautiful simulation lab that really makes it feel like you're in a hospital setting and it's just helping to get me prepared to work with real patients. The same was true for my classes on campus in our biology labs, chemistry labs. I was even able to participate in a cadaver lab and so it's great that we have those kind of resources and the hands on experiences right here on campus.
