Why did you choose the Nursing program?

What are you learning about your career field that you find interesting or rewarding?

Throughout this short but very intensive year, I've obtained a lot of knowledge and experience in health science, which has helped me start a new career with ThedaCare. I find the techniques that teachers use to be very interesting. The teachers give students many different resources and methods to become successful. I find it very rewarding that when you do your best the teachers recognize your efforts.

How did Fox Valley Technical College change your life?
The experiences I have had at Fox Valley Technical College have helped me in both my professional and personal life. My new job at ThedaCare gives me a strong base to build on for my future health care career. I also became more sociable and outgoing and have met a lot of new people from different backgrounds and with different career goals.

What type of job do you expect to find after graduation?
After graduation, I plan on working as a registered nurse and gaining work experience in the field. Then I would like to continue my education at a medical college and become a physician.
