Interview with an Accelerated Nursing Student

I’m excited to again step back from sharing my views and experiences in this blog and let somebody else do the talking. This is my second entry in a series of interviews that I’m conducting with others pursuing health careers. I think that we (as ambitious Future Health Professionals) often get so entrenched in our chosen programs of study that we fail to understand the journeys of others. I hope that this series will allow you to discover not only new health professions (and the various paths that lead to them) but also the motivations of those students who pursue those careers.

Thoughts on Beginning Medical School

The original intent of this blog was for me to share my experiences as I made my way through the medical school application process and then through medical school itself. While I’m certainly glad that the application process is over, I hope that my thoughts have helped those of you applying to or considering applying to professional health programs. With that said, it’s now time to shift toward that second subject - in August I donned a white coat and began my time as a medical student at the University of Oklahoma College of Medicine in Oklahoma City.

HOSA Harvey Relief

Adopt a Texas HOSA Chapter-Pay It Forward!

As you know, Hurricane Harvey has effected many HOSA members and over 400 HOSA chapters in Houston and the surrounding areas. While we know that all chapters and members will not need the same support, we would like to help relieve their burden in a way that only our HOSA family can. One way we can help other HOSA chapters is by paying for membership, fall conference registration fees, travel funds, or by replacing damaged supplies.
