Find out how we have changed the lives of some of our past students.
Paige completed a pre-nursing program at St. Joseph Hospital.
“Having the ability to travel from the United States to Tanzania in Africa was one of the best experiences of my life. I loved being surrounded by new people and exposed to such a different culture.
My shadowing nursing internship program was fantastic and I thoroughly enjoyed the global health tutorials, going on rounds with the nurses and learning so many new things each day. The staff mentors were also incredibly nice and went out of their way to make sure I had a great time.
For example, I told my mentor that I was interested in learning more about the specialty of anesthesia so she placed me in surgery with the anesthesiologist!
Being one of the few Americans in my group, I learned a lot from the other teenagers around me. We definitely bonded and I know I will always have those friends in my life.
It’s safe to say, without this experience, I never would have truly known if nursing is what I wanted to do in the future as my career.
Thank you Gap Medics for this truly incredible experience.”
