North Central College - Naperville, IL

Sara spent a year at another college before making the switch to North Central. It’s a decision she’ll never regret.

“When I came here, it was a completely different experience and it’s made me a better person. I was challenged more than I’d ever been before, but my professors helped me through it,” she says. “North Central is an amazing school to attend—especially if you’re interested in going into science.”

Sara plans to enroll in the Rush University College of Nursing’s Generalist Entry Master’s (GEM) program to pursue a career as a nurse practitioner after she graduates from North Central. An affiliation agreement between the two institutions guarantees qualified North Central graduates admission into the GEM program.

Sara learned about that opportunity after consulting with North Central’s dedicated pre-health advisor.

“I feel like I’m prepared for the program because I’ve learned so much here. The faculty has given me the information and lab skills I need to do well in nursing. They’ve prepared me to keep trying and never give up, no matter how hard I think the material is.”
