“As an EMT, I was hearing from healthcare providers in my home community about how much they preferred working with LC State nursing grads. I knew that I could finish the program in four semesters and have a successful career without going into debt. The size of the school and the BSN student-to-teacher ratio were big factors. LC State was my top choice.” - Timothy Dorsey ‘20
