The knowledge I gained during my clinical rotations was vast as I was introduced to psychiatry, dialysis, management and many other areas in the field of nursing.
I decided to enroll in the RN-to-BSN program at D'Youville because I wanted to further my education in nursing. I took some time off work to raise my small children but I knew I wanted to go back to school so that when I returned to the field of nursing I would be able to make a substantial contribution and advance in my career. The rewarding part about studying at D'Youville is that the RN-to-BSN program is very easy to follow. As a working adult with a family to take care of, my life does not have room for many surprises. The program at D'Youville helped me plan my education accordingly as it breaks down all of the necessary steps that need to be taken.
I chose D'Youville because of its small size as well as for the program's affordability. I was able to meet with the faculty and talk about the program before I started and I felt confident that I would be able to succeed. The professors in the nursing department are always available to help me and they promptly respond to any questions that I might have.
I thought that I would not meet many people like me at D'Youville, but that could not have been farther from the truth. There are so many students close to my age who work full time and have families as well. We really helped each other out and made sure that we all succeed in the program. The environment at D'Youville is conducive not only to learning but to forming lasting relationships as well.
While in the RN-to-BSN program I have had the opportunity to be part of a two clinical rotations. Each experience was rewarding as I worked alongside an excellent nurse manager at ECMC in the dialysis unit. The knowledge I gained during those two rotations was vast as I was introduced to psychiatry, dialysis, management and many other areas. At the moment, I am working with adolescents and my education has taught me how to develop programs and teaching tools in my office that assist them with the social and health issues that they deal with on a daily basis.
