Student testimonials

..the shadow experience allowed me to see first hand what I would like to do for my career.

    I loved every second. I wish it was longer.

      …being able to connect with other students like me was great.

        …learning about different college funding options really helped me.

          …being able to shadow a PICU nurse is an opportunity that most kids my age don't get.
