What is your future academic or career plans?

My future academic plans include getting my license, going to work as an RN and then possibly getting a Masters Degree. I am considering going into pediatrics.

Why should students interested in a Nursing degree attend LSUA?

I would tell them that it is hard work and it is tougher than many other schools, but in the end, you will be more prepared for your career. We do have a lot of new technology and hands-on equipment that teaches and prepares you for when you go into the hospital.

How has your opinion of LSUA changed over time?

I think that the LSUA community has become more involved in providing activities for students. These types of organizations have grown considerably over the past few years and seem to be continuing to grow.

How is LSUA preparing you for your career after college?

I’ve learned a lot by the hands-on experience I’ve received, and my clinical experience was very good. I got to interact with patients and get a feel of what it will be like when I become a licensed nurse.

LSUA is a smaller school, with smaller classrooms; how has this been a benefit to you?

I feel like more attention is being placed on the students since LSUA does have a very low teacher-to-student ratio. The teachers are able to interact more with students. If there were more students in each class, the instructors wouldn’t be able to give as much attention to each individual student.

What does “Your future is our future” mean to you?

I know my teachers in the nursing program want me to succeed. They are preparing me to be the best nurse that I can be.
