“It’s not about the pay for me,” said first-year nursing student Curtis Ford. “It’s about impacting people’s lives, and also there are so many different fields you can go into and specialize in.”
Second-year student Zach Smith agreed that compensation is secondary to him.
“I know the pay is decent, but I really just like taking care of people, and that is the part that is most rewarding,” Smith said.
Ford said Studying at Barton has been helpful in jumpstarting his career.
“I’ve had a really good experience with our teachers and our clinical sites,” Ford said. “I can tell my teachers really want me to succeed.”
Smith also identified his experience in the nursing program as positive.
“I have had great interaction with the instructors, and one-on-one attention, and the clinical sites are very good,” he said.
