Today I had the pleasure of talking to Priscilla, a third year Human Development student. She has aspirations to get into nursing school within the next year. While she applied to Long Beach, she thinks she’ll end up choosing a private school. We were talking about the trade off between pursuing nursing at a community college vs private school. If she were to go to a community college, she would save money, but the program would be at least 4 years. If she goes to a private school, she’s definitely pay more money but save time. In the long run, time is money, and more job experience to put on your resume. Again, because I’m so obsessed with Italy, we spoke about traveling for a little. She told me she got to go to Florence and Rome when she was 17. We talked a bit about the initial culture shock of being in a country where the customs and traditions are so different. She is a super cool girl and I recommend checking out her blog!
