"I have been able to share my story with a couple of clients, single mothers, and hope that it gives them the strength somehow, in some way, to continue their education for a better life. I don't think a day goes by that I haven't thought about my connection to COD and how it has changed my life."Read Spotlight
"My first year in the program exposed me to so many wonderful teachers. Everybody says how nursing is so hard and everybody is terrified when they first begin the program. Is it a lot of work? Yes. Is it impossible? No. You just need to be willing to put in the work."Read Spotlight
