This past summer I had the opportunity to "study away" at American University in DC. The specific program that I attended is the Washington Semester Program, which includes an internship and class, and also runs in a bigger version during the fall and spring semesters. What I liked most about the program were the friends that I met, opportunities that I enjoyed, and the fun! During my time in DC was very busy, as I was taking an AU class, two NU classes, a 40 hour/w internship, a part-time job, and trying to explore. Friends! Since the first night that I arrived in DC, by chance I answered a Facebook post offering to meet up in a group for brunch. Not knowing how well I would get along with them, I was hesitant, but went. That one day set up friendships for the whole summer (and a few for hopefully... Continue reading

For many of you reading this, you are going into your first week of finals in your college career. For others of you, this may just be another week. No matter who you are it is always a stressful time of year. Personally, for me, there are three rules I try to follow. Those being, have a support system, maintain your physical health, and find something to look forward to. For my support system, I have my boyfriend, friends, and family close by a helping me along the way. With that said, that is not what your group has to consist of it is just important to have a solid support system no matter what it may be. When I say maintain physical health I don’t mean going to the gym or going on a diet. I just mean focusing on making sure you don’t skip meals, you don’t wait... Continue reading

For all of the sophomore nursing students, November 29th will always be a special day in our hearts. That is the day that we got presented our white lab coats. These coats symbolize the completion of another chapter of our nursing career. With that being said, this is a huge deal to Norwich University's School of Nursing and the students. We also got presented a pin from The Gold Foundation. This pin symbolizes trust, respect, and communication within the healthcare professionals and mainly is an oath to "keep healthcare human." I feel beyond grateful that Norwich acknowledges their students for their hard work and dedication. It encourages us to keep pushing forward and knowing we have a great support system always helps. It is also a day that your family and friends are welcome to come to share your achievements with you. It's nice to be able to relax with... Continue reading

I know it can be tough to stay on top of school work, especially during college. It is often a challenge to juggle friendships, family, a relationship, school work and also a job. I find it difficult to figure out time management for all of those things. However, it is important to make sure you have a balance. I usually have a set schedule that I like to go by so I know what time I have free time to hang out with friends but also making sure I focus on the most important part, that being school. If I have a gap between classes, I go to the library to do homework even if it's for an hour. I know an hour doesn't seem long but it definitely helps. Instead of waiting till late that night to do homework, I try to finish it during the day so that... Continue reading

Maintaining a job while being a nursing student has its pros and cons. It is extremely hard and exhausting but it is doable. One of the pros is that I get to work in a field that I am most passionate about, the healthcare field. I get paid for doing things that I love which is taking care of people in need. I can use the knowledge and skills that I have been trained in (I am a Licensed Nurses Assistant). I get to bring my homework for my downtime. Some of the pros are having to go to school all day, then head into work, stay up all night and then come back in the morning to get ready to go to class. I don't get the amount of sleep that I need but I am at least loving what I do. It can be physically and emotionally draining... Continue reading

It is that time of year where everyone has their own family traditions. Family traditions are what makes the holidays so special. My family has a Christmas party every Christmas Eve. My mom and I spend all day preparing food and then at 6 pm my family shows up. We eat together and then sit around the Christmas tree to open up gifts. We then turn on the radio and dispatch tells all of the kids that the local airport saw Santa's sleigh and 8 tiny reindeer. They tell all the kids to rush home and crawl into bed before Santa arrives. It is so cute seeing my niece and nephews grab their coats and boots and rush out the door to make it home in time. Then on Christmas day, we make cinnamon buns and open presents. After that, we go to my stepsister's house in pajamas and hang... Continue reading
