If you want do something, don’t worry about others who may be negative. Positivity has the influence to allow you to do positive things.”
Why did you want to become a nurse?
“From childhood, I wanted to become a nurse. However, my family wanted me to be a teacher, so I did that for 7-8 years. When I came to America from India, I still wanted to become a nurse, and so I did it. I finally had the opportunity to achieve that goal in this country with CDI.”
Why did you choose Career Development Institute, Inc. (CDI)?
“I live close to the school, so the location was good for me. I was also looking for a small school with limited class size so I could get more instructor attention if I needed it.
I had a lot of personal responsibilities, so it was my job to determine how I would balance both school and home life. I could always go to CDI to discuss what was going on, and they would help me by providing solutions. CDI is always there to help you solve any problems you may have.”
What is your favorite thing about CDI?
“The staff. Whatever your weakness or issue, they always offer solutions in how to solve them. If you are having trouble, don’t be shy. Talk to them! How will they know to help if you don’t talk to them?”
How would you describe the VN program?
“If you really want to learn something, go to CDI. That’s what I tell my friends. This school pushes you to be your best. If you want to learn, they will help you understand.
After our month long NCLEX review, I made my appointment to take the test right away. I wanted to take it while I felt it was fresh in my mind. When I held the approval letter in my hands, I cried tears of joy!”
What would you tell prospective students thinking of entering the VN program?
“If you want to learn, go to this school! Only you can commit. You need to balance your priorities and have a good support system when you enroll. Commit to yourself first and stay committed always.”
Do you have any advice for current students?
“I found group studies to be very helpful. Me and some other students would sit at Starbucks, hours at a time to study. You can also go to CDI if you’re having trouble, they will help you.
I would also say to always stay positive. If you want do something, don’t worry about others who may be negative. Positivity has the influence to allow you to do positive things.”
