I just wanted to give a shout out to the nursing department. I am currently in a hospital in Louisiana and have one of your nursing graduates. My hospital stay has been a very bad experience because of lack of communication, but my nurse has been a bright spot. It made me proud of her and of the program at LC. It was also nice to make a connection, finding out she knows my daughter since they were in school at the same time.
Thank you for investing in the professionalism of nursing. Keep up the good work. Nursing is a ministry for people during some of their hardest times!"
