On Nursing in a Medical Model Group Home:
"It’s different than a hospital, but I’m still getting the experience. I’m with the same patients day-in and day-out, so it really helps me individualize my care. And I know in the future wherever my life may take me in my nursing career, I’ll be able to effectively communicate with different patients."
On Receiving a Nursing Scholarship:
"The scholarship that I got from Labouré helped me when I was going through a lot personally. Being in school, and having the support and the instructors that I had helped me push through. Now I am able to register for my boards, and I will make a difference in a lot of people's lives."
On What It Takes to Be a Nurse:
"Nursing as a career takes a real special kind of person. If they’re looking at nursing as a way to make a living, you can do that anywhere. If they’re looking at nursing as a way to change a life, or to contribute to someone's life so that they remember you, then you know you’ve got the right person."
On Treating a Young Radiation Therapy Patient:
"Patients of that age need anesthesia [to remain still during treatment] but it’s not ideal to put a patient under every day, so we spent the beginning course of treatment working with Ashlynn and her parents to do the treatments without the anesthesia. She did it without any problems at all. It was such a huge victory for all of us."
On Medical Coding at Labouré:
"When my children were older, I decided to go back to school. I knew what coding was, and after meeting the chairperson, I knew that it was something I wanted to do. Even though it was online, it still had the feel of being in a classroom."

“With a combination of high-quality theoretical classes and hands-on clinical experience, the Neurodiagnostic program at Labouré allowed me to learn and grow at such a level that I began working in the field less than a year into training and became the Chief Technologist at one of Boston's finest hospitals just 4 years after graduation. I am very grateful for my experience at Labouré because it provided me the opportunity to break into an exciting field and become a valued member of a healthcare team."
“My decision to attend Labouré College was an easy one. Once I researched HIM programs on the AHIMA website and saw Labouré was listed, I applied. The Labouré name is so well known in the Boston health care world that I didn’t even think about it twice! I was hired as the HIM director’s administrative assistant as a student at Labouré and still hold that position."
“I chose Labouré because of its great reputation in the Boston area. I wanted to become a nurse because it's something I feel good about. I've always been a people person... I like my job because I know I'm making a difference in people's lives."
“What I enjoy about Labouré College is that faculty and staff encourage student nurses to connect with their patients spiritually. From Orientation Day to the required Theology and Applied Ethics classes, students interact with Instructors who value and inspire students to recognize the place of faith and Ethics in our clinical rotations. Faith is important to me because I know when you connect with patients spiritually or emotionally, they become more comfortable even though they are ill. Though I will not be able to remove all illness in my patients, a priority for me, as a licensed nurse, will be to honor the faiths of my patients as appropriate. I am happy Labouré is guiding me in ways to bond with my future patients both medically and spiritually.”
