Nursing was WCU-Texas alumna Sarah H.’s second career change, but she didn’t let that stop her from pursuing a lifelong dream. “I’ve always loved the medical field,” Sarah said. “Growing up, I wanted to be a nurse or a doctor.”
However, it wasn’t until after Sarah had to step into a caretaker role for her father when he was diagnosed with cancer that she realized how much nursing meant to her. “It just really reminded me how much I love caring for people.”
While she had the passion for nursing, Sarah still needed the tools to pursue the career. That’s where West Coast University came in.
“Being a second-career-change student, I didn’t want to do another whole four years for another bachelor’s. The fact that it was an accelerated program was like, ‘Okay, great, I don’t have to spend four years.’”Sarah H., WCU-Texas BSN Alumna
