“I looked at bigger nursing schools, but I realized the best option for me was a smaller school where professors know who you are. I also wanted a school with ties to Boston, because the city offers some of the best hospitals and clinical sites in the United States.”

During the spring semester of 2013, Curry College Nursing students volunteered their time to work with seniors, residents of the Simon C. Fireman Community in Randolph, MA. They shared helpful medical advice about reducing blood pressure, healthy eating, and preventing falls.
Amber Soucy '13 applied to several colleges when looking at Nursing programs, but when it came down to making a decision, the choice was clear. "I was directly accepted into the Curry Nursing program...I received better scholarships from Curry...and I would also get to start my clinical rotations during sophomore year, so I would gain that real world experience right off the bat."
Helping people is in Julia Jacobs' blood...literally. She eventually followed in her father's footsteps by becoming both a volunteer firefighter and certified Emergency Medical Technician (EMT) while in high school. It was only logical that when she started looking at colleges, she would pursue a career in a similar field.
