Right before I was accepted into the LPN program at Cambridge I went through a divorce. I was left with all of the bills and responsibilities and had no idea how I was going to be able to afford to live, let alone attend school full time. I could barely cover my rent on my own on my income. I knew that I had no choice but to figure it out and ended up finding a roommate and worked a lot of overtime whenever I had the chance. I have been at school for six months now, and although it has never been easy, I have learned how to prioritize my life to ensure I succeed and can achieve my dream of becoming a nurse. I am very grateful to the support I have received from my professors and to the friends I have made at school. They make it worth waking up at 5 am every day to come in to class/clinical!
Instructor Burk is one of the best teachers I’ve ever had. She is always encouraging our class to strive for excellence and it is obvious she really cares about us becoming good and competent nurses. She explains the material in a variety of ways to ensure that everyone comprehends the information and she is a very positive influence on all of us. She makes school a very enjoyable experience.
