“I was initially attracted to the CSB/SJU’s longstanding reputation of academic excellence. I appreciated the emphasis on the liberal arts and Benedictine values because I knew I would be challenged to think outside the box and graduate with a broadened perspective. The nursing program at CSB/SJU fully prepared me to assess each encounter through a holistic lens, think critically, and advocate passionately for my patients. Starting my career in a fast-pace clinical environment caring for people with complex medical needs seemed daunting; however, thanks to the quality nursing education I received at CSB/SJU, my transition from student to professional nurse went seamlessly.”
