Appreciative nursing students say thanks

Linfield College Portland CampusLinfield College students have much to be thankful for. Each year at Thanksgiving, students on the Portland Campus make a list of things they appreciate. Here’s what they said.

  • I am thankful to have the privilege of being able to go to college to earn an education and pursue my dream of being a nurse! Not to mention I am thankful to be surrounded by a supportive group of individuals who are doing the same.
  • I am thankful for the nursing staff members who work incredibly hard to give us all amazing opportunities.
  • I am thankful for Linfield Nursing! This is a small, yet powerful college indeed. I love the neighborhood, the awesome staff and faculty.
  • I am thankful for this opportunity to experience such an amazing holistic nursing curriculum that emphasizes the importance of evidence-based practice in a constantly changing healthcare system. I am happy Linfield chose me!
  • I am thankful for my roommate! Through every challenge, we always find a reason to smile. I couldn’t imagine this experience without this person.
  • I am thankful for learning, for growth, and for inspiration.
  • I am thankful for a fantastic staff member who helped me get two PERFECT senior practicum sites!
