Shining Their Light
I chose Assumption because I was interested in being part of the innovative new nursing program.
I loved the campus and wanted to be close to home. I enjoy helping people and want to be part of making lives better.
I’ve found my purpose at Assumption.
The new nursing program, the state-of-the-art health science building, and the variety of excellent clinical placement options in Worcester are why I chose to enroll here. I want to help people through this extremely fulfilling profession.
Assumption’s nursing program provides students with the support and attention they need to succeed.
I want to become a nurse so I can help people when they need it most. I’ve seen nurses in action and appreciate the skills and compassion that they provide their patients. This combination of technical skills and compassion would allow me to truly impact another life.
Assumption feels like home.
I toured other college campuses but quickly realized what I wanted in a school and found it at Assumption. An active member of ROTC in high school, I naturally fell into a caretaker role and knew Assumption’s new nursing program would be a great fit for me.
I fell in love with Assumption’s campus and the idea of being part of a brand new nursing program.
I’ve always known I’ve wanted to become a nurse and wanted to help people. I graduated from Blackstone Valley Tech’s Health Services program and am a certified nursing assistant (CNA).
I chose Assumption because I really loved the campus and Dean Stover made me feel at home.
I also like the 1:1 connection students have here with faculty - you can’t get that attention from larger nursing programs. I always wanted to be a nurse and my past experience volunteering at Tufts Medical Center just reaffirmed that.

These classrooms are not only used for the nursing and physician assistant program, rather all academic programs on campus.
