Student Q&A:


1. What is your graduation year and major(s)/minor(s)?

Nursing 2023


2. What inspired you to pursue your major(s)?

Nursing has always been my dream. I am an STNA at a nursing home and I wanted to improve upon my knowledge to become a nurse


3. Why did you choose the Mount?

I have friends in Columbus, Ohio who said great things about the Mount. They knew someone who graduated from the nursing program and told them how dedicated the professors were. When I called admissions, they received me with great politeness and explained everything in detail. I applied to schools in Washington State but didn’t get admission so I decided to take the chance and relocate to Ohio. Also, my husband worked in Seattle and had 2 bosses who grew up in Ohio. They said good things about the Mount, they said, "It’s a good school". People know the Mount all the way in Washington State!


4. Is there a professor/instructor that helped your development as a person?

I think all of the professors were good to me. Professor Getz always had a listening ear if I had something bothering me. She emailed me when I forgot to register for a class or submit an assignment and she advised me when I decided to drop a class. Dr. Heheman went above and beyond explaining things in detail to me to clarify my confusion. She did Zoom calls to explain things to me further so I could understand the content. She is a great person and really cares about her students. Cindy Needham, Professor Matthias, Dr. Warde, Dr. MacPherson, and Dr. Curtis are a few others I’d like to name that were very nice and helpful.


5. How would you rate your educational experience at the Mount so far?

I think the professors at the Mount really care that you succeed. They care about your GPA and they want you to be a better nurse. They are there to assist you and make sure you know that they are just an email or call away so do not hesitate to contact them. I remember one time I was working in the nursing home and I was wearing my Mount t-shirt when one of the resident's sons came in while I was providing patient care to his father. When I was done he asked me if I go to the Mount because of my t-shirt and I informed him that I did. He said, "Wow! That is a great school. My 2 boys graduated from there. I know sometimes it can be tough but it will all pay off.”


6. What are your post-graduation plans?

To pursue my dream of working as a nurse.
