Nursing Graduate Success Story
Shernette Parkinson: “I graduated from City College with an Associate’s degree in Nursing. Prior to becoming a student, I was working as a phlebotomist at a blood bank. I wanted to have more opportunities, and I’ve always been interested in the medical field.

At City College, they go above and beyond to help you. I got great hands-on experience working in the labs on mannequins and practicing with IVs. I learned a lot during my externship at a  medical center. Now, I have a job at the same unit where I did my externship! I am doing what I love – caring for patients who are just coming out of surgery. City College changed my life. Without my education, I wouldn’t have a great nursing career right now.”
