Becoming a nurse will allow me to provide for my family while caring for others. ACTC offers a practical nursing program in only three semesters and is made up of three components. The lab is hands on, and it's where I learn the skills involved in nursing. In the classroom setting, I learn the theory that every good nurse needs to know. My favorite part, clinical, is where I gain real life experience and the confidence that nursing really is the career for me. My instructors provide time for one on one help if I need it and I know that they want me to succeed.
