Sarah Kim uses one word to explain her years as a nursing student at Georgia Gwinnett College: “Amazing!” She was able to lean on friends, faculty and staff to help her along the way – even when she considered withdrawing from the nursing program after a house fire. “I received enormous amounts of love and care throughout my hardships and I was able to pull through with the support I was given at GGC,” Kim stated. “I also learned how to succeed emotionally and mentally along the nursing career route.” The School of Health Sciences unique “teach back” method helps students like Kim develop their weaknesses into strengths. Less than one month after her graduation, Kim began her career as a registered nurse with a local medical facility.
