Nursing as a career has given me the privilege of caring for and being with people during their most vulnerable times. There is no better career that allows you an open invitation to positively shape and guide the health and wellbeing of others.
Alecia Nye, Ph.D. MN, RN, Dean - Nursing & Allied Health
The RN-BSN program motivated me to make considerable changes in our community and inspired me to open my heart to more knowledge and resources available to all the nurses, worldwide.
Neslie Anne Lebita, RN-BSN, Class of 2018
I achieved my CNA, my LPN, my RN, and now my BSN all at OC. This program helped me prepare for my future career and opened me up to many choices in nursing I never knew existed. Not only has this program enhanced my reading, writing, leadership and research skills, but has helped me grow academically overall.
Brittany S., RN-BSN, Class of 2018
The ADN program enabled me to view the world as a nurse; the BSN program has encouraged me to broaden my view of what being a nurse truly means. The BSN program pushes nurses to be the voice for a multitude of vulnerable populations as well as widening the understanding of the depth and breadth of our influence.
