Elizabeth Weiss ’10
Nurse at St. Joseph’s Hospital and Health Center in Dickinson, N.D.
Concordia teaches us to become ‘thoughtful and informed men and women dedicated to the Christian life" so we can influence the world and make a difference.’ Each day I try to make a positive difference in the lives of the people I serve; ripples in a pond instead of waves in the ocean
Anastasia Young '14
Nursing and Religion Majors
I’ve been able to do everything I’ve wanted to do at Concordia. Because of my experiences, I know that I will be able to serve others by combining my passions for healing and interfaith issues.”
Calvin Miller ‘07
RN in Cardiac Intensive Care at Sanford Health in Fargo, N.D.
Nursing is such a diverse profession with an incredibly steep learning curve, so it is extremely rare for new graduate nurses to feel one hundred percent prepared when they finally are responsible and accountable for the lives of their patients. That being said, I believe that Concordia provided me with the essential experiences, resources, and knowledge in order to feel confident in my ability to learn and adapt to any situation.
Brittany Vander Kooy '10
Telemetry RN, Hoag Hospital in Newport Beach, Calif.
The Concordia nursing department made me prepared to walk into real nursing life and thrive. The professors and clinical educators taught me how to be a professional, whether that is interacting with patients and/or families to peers and also to management. When I left Concordia, I was prepared.
Katie Hoven ’13
R.N. on cardiology unit, Sanford Health in Sioux Falls, S.D.
Concordia has provided me with a lot of great experiences – not only in my nursing program but also through other opportunities. The nursing faculty has been outstanding and given me a lot of different experiences that cover a wide range of the nursing practice.
