“Southside College of Health Sciences curriculum was challenging, but with the supportive instructors and clinical educators, I felt prepared for taking the NCLEX, as well as entering the nursing field. Hands on clinical experiences that were offered early on in the program helped me become a more competent nurse.   Smaller class sizes and clinical groups were conducive to learning and allowed me to to establish more personal relationships with professors and peers. My experiences at Southside College of Health Sciences led me to find my passion in caring for cardiac patients.”
