Nursing: Student Testimonials

Alexa Colgan

Alexa Colgan – Hanover, PA, Sophomore

“Whether you’re in the Pre-Nursing program or in the Nursing program, we all share a common mission of caring for others. Here at Mont Alto, not only do the professors want you to succeed, but they also want you to reach your highest potential. Nursing won’t be easy, and it may take staying up late and gallons of coffee, but everyone wants you to reach your goal of becoming the best nurse you can be. The program will challenge you, but you will be exposed to many opportunities and experiences that will make it work all the hard work.”

“The Nursing program at Penn State Mont Alto is one of the best. The professors work with you one-on-one and they give you the tools you need to succeed. It is a two-way street and, if you put in the work, they will help you succeed. Also, it is really nice for them to get to know you on an individual basis. It’s comforting to know that when you walk into your lab, they are going to know your name. It feels good to know that you’re not just another face in the classroom – you mean something to them. I know that what I am learning, I am going to be able to use for the rest of my life.”

“I love Penn State Mont Alto Nursing because we go through the program as a family. We lean on each other for support. Professors are always willing to help and answer questions. In the end, I know that I will have gotten a world-class nursing education not far from home. In addition, I will be prepared to pass the NCLEX on the first attempt. Not many people can say they will from graduate nursing school after completing over 10,000 practice questions.”
