With the start of the new semester, and new year, and hopefully continuiny to encourage other students to join in the next coming years, a new club emerged on campus: Nursing Club.
Nursing Club’s first meeting was held in the KCC with complimentary refreshments and an outline of what this club will want to include in their next meetings.

President of the club, Yeshwanth Rayappan and Vice president of the club, Sarah Stevens with Dr. Reigstad (adivosr) hosted the first meeting for this club on March 2nd, 2018 and their meetings now meet every Monday at 11:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. in KZ room 104.

Rayappan and Stevens who are both nursing majors came up with the idea of starting a nursing club
as a way to bring together students who are interested in the medical field or want to become a nurse and perfect their skills as well as find time amongst their hectic schedule to have a group study session for the TEAS (Test of Essential Academic Skills) exam that they have to take.

“Since the club is very new we don’t have all the things we plan to do yet, but we do plan on incorporating Resurrection University visit days, a CPR course, and guest speakers. We also plan on preparing each other for[the courses] we need to take for the nursing major and medical news,” said Stevens.

Although the Club might correlate with the Pre-Med club, this club focuses more on future nursing

“Almost anyone that has an interest in the healthcare field can join this club, but it is strictly geared towards Nursing club. It is directly related to the nursing program in which we are all focusing on it towards the near future,” said Rayappan.

Life Is Messy

Finding who you are in your 20s

Life Is Messy

I am 25 years old and just now learning who I am. When I separated from my husband I was terrified of what would follow. I did not know who I was outside of a relationship, nor did I know how to be on my own. It was scary, and I was so lost. I spent months discovering who I was, and what I wanted to be. I am still searching as I believe we never truly know who we are even when we "grow up". I came to the realization that I had been hiding a part of myself for my entire life. Coming out was not easy, growing up in the church made it scary, and hard. I was told growing up that being anything but straight was such a sin, and that i would spent my life in hell because of it. I came out to my parents when I was 25 years old. I picked up the phone and called my mom, and uttered the words "I'm queer" through tears. I knew my parents would be supportive, but that didn't make it any easier for me to vulnerable and raw. Since then, I have slowly started being more authentic in who I am, and not hide parts of me just because of people's shitty opinions.

Alone At The Met

I survive a day alone in NYC.

It was six in the evening. I was sitting in the courtyard of a Renaissance-era Italian villa, glancing around at the statues, most notably one of a boy removing a thorn from his foot. Despite the supposedly relaxing setting, I was incredibly anxious. My phone was at less than 5 percent battery, and once it died I would be completely disconnected from my family and peers, alone in one of the largest art museums in the country.
