“I chose Curry because I really enjoyed the campus feel, I felt safe there. I also looked at the students and I saw me. I felt like I could relate to them. I felt comfortable and that was really important-just fitting in.”

Curry College Nursing Students Volunteer at Simon C. Fireman Community
June 4, 2013
Curry College Nursing students engage and interact with residents of the Simon C. Fireman Residential Community, an independent senior housing complex affiliated with Hebrew Senior Life. Through this intergenerational connection, students and older adults benefit from discussion, reflection and experiential learning. These enriching encounters promote an enhanced awareness and appreciation for the worth and dignity of each individual.
"I absolutely love the feeling of giving back, especially with the opportunities we get through the Curry Nursing program," said Caitlin Gunn, class of 2015. "I love interacting with the [community residents], it makes them happy, and it really makes my day as well."
Sophomore Shaylee McCarron added, "It's a great learning experience all around. During one of our visits with the residents we discussed their medications, and not only did I learn a lot, but I feel like we helped educate them a bit as well."
"This is my third time coming to the Simon Fireman Community, and the thing I love is that it's not strictly a medical visit, we actually get to know the resdidents on a personal level," said Jillian Hudgin, class of 2015.
