Dallas Nursing Institute: From compassion to serviceApril 18, 2017
Recently, we asked our students and faculty how their time at Dallas Nursing Institute has benefited them. Their answers were both impactful and emotional.
The determination of our students to help others is striking, and that drive will help them develop into extraordinary nurses. Many choose to volunteer their time outside of class to give back to their community at free clinics or by offering free screenings.
By sharing the same compassion that’s inside every one of our students, our faculty help lay the foundation for a successful nursing career. They’re not just teachers, they’re practicing nurses with years of experience. Focused on community involvement as well as rigorous clinical training, our faculty are able to guide students to become a part of something bigger.
