I am an adjunct Nursing professor at and alumna of Nassau Community College. In addition, I'm a Clinical Nurse Manager at a State Veterans Home, managing two units that are designated COVID19 units. Some of my responsibilities include promoting and restoring patients' health; enforcing adherence to CMS and DOH regulations; maintaining the nursing staff by recruiting, selecting, and orienting; and providing support for patients' families and loved ones.

Although the COVID19 pandemic is by far the greatest challenge of my 31-year nursing career, I have never been prouder to be a nurse. I received my Nursing degree from NCC in 1989. The College gave me the highest quality education and career preparation for such a time as this.

Nassau Community College provided me with a fundamental understanding of the field of nursing, including real-life experience and the standards of nursing practice. Some of my favorite memories include all of my clinical rotations, being a part of the Nursing Club, and the friendships I made that have lasted a lifetime.

I am forever grateful for the tremendous start to my nursing education at Nassau Community College. It is a pleasure to give back to the profession of nursing by now educating future nurses at the College.

I am a Liberal Arts major in my second year at NCC. The biggest reason why I chose Nassau Community College is that I had no idea what I wanted to do with my life after high school and saw NCC as the perfect place to explore that.

I am a marketing major and will graduate in 2025. After a rough start at a large four-year university, I chose to attend Nassau Community College. It has a nice campus, a great community, and besides — my mom went here! My best experience so far has been my in-class presentations.

I transferred to NCC to pursue a degree in Nursing. After some sudden life-changing events I needed to be back home with my family. Nassau was the best educational opportunity for me, especially considering my chosen career path. One of my favorite experiences at the College so far has been forming a sense of community with my peers.

For my first semester of college, I attended a large university out of state. As the semester went on, I was feeling more and more detached from the experience. After some contemplation I decided that coming back home for college would be my best choice.

My major is Biology and I am in my second year at NCC. I originally came to Nassau Community College because of the smaller class sizes and proximity to my home but the terrific faculty and flexible class schedules are great as well. As a science major, I would have to say one of my favorite experiences at Nassau has been the hands-on work that we do in the labs during biology classes.
