Welcome to Fall 2013!!! We are growing here at ETBU Nursing – we have the largest Level I class cohort in the history of ETBU Nursing. Thirty four students started their professional program this semester and they are doing GREAT! Our seniors are embarking on their final year of education before they continue their life-long learning as ETBU Nursing Graduates. Over 75 freshmen have chosen nursing as their profession/major, while our sophomores are entering their second year of pre-requisite study toward their goal of becoming professional nurses.
I have been called to the ministry of nursing. I cannot explain the mix of emotions I am feeling as I prepare to enter ETBU’s professional nursing program in the fall. I am ecstatic and jittery to experience the intense focus, spot-on time management, and even saying no to social events with my friends…yes, it’s all worth it for the cause of Christ. I know He will be glorified.
I believe God has equipped me in very specific ways to enhance His kingdom through healthcare. What an incredible, humbling privilege it is to be trained at such a place as ETBU to do some of the very things Jesus did. He healed the diseased, restored sight to the blind, cared for those who could not care for themselves and most importantly, loved the unloved. I cannot wait to do all of these things.
