Words of Encouragement from Doctor Helen Taylor R.N.

This morning as I write to those who are entering or thinking about nursing school.  I know how tough and challenging nursing school can be.  I wanted to share a bit of encouragement from our students who have just graduated from PMCI’s vocational nursing program.  

"At first I didnt think I was smart or tough enough to become a nurse so I decided to take the CNA course over the summer to see what it was like to be a nurse. It was great being able to learn the basics of helping people. I took the final state exam and passed! A few months later I had the courage to start the LVN course and am so glad I started with the basics." 

“Coming into the program, I didn’t know what to expect. I had some doubts and a lot of questions and I was so worried.  I asked myself, ‘Can I handle the challenges my instructors expect of me?  Will I complete the program and meet my goals?’  With those questions I felt it was time to map out a strategy.  I decided to take great notes, attend every class, and always follow my instructor’s directions and advice.  Plus, another great tool was to use the tutors offered at PMCI. The tutors were so helpful that when I took my first test I aced it.  I have never gotten an “A” on a test but it happened with the help of my tutors at PMCI."

 “My education at PMCI has helped me so much. It is tough, but it gave me the right training and the confidence to go into the world. I learned to never quit. If it gets too tough, ask questions, seek help and above all talk to your instructors.  Several of my instructors stayed late after class to answer my questions.”

“Now that I’m finished with the program I definitely recommend PMCI nursing school to others. It’s not just about the Vocational Nursing certificate; this program prepared me for the world. I feel so proud to say “Professional Medical Careers Institute” taught me how to be an LVN.”

“When I get a smile from a patient I know I am doing a good job.  There are so many rewards at being an LVN that at the end of the day I feel fulfilled.

"Thank you PMCI!"
