Name: Richard Gaudet
Major Program of Study:
I chose Middlesex because it was affordable, and the Admissions Office staff members were so friendly and helpful. They made the process of getting the college experience started much easier.
I currently work as a respiratory therapist, a field I regret leaving. However, I want to be a nurse to use the skills I already have in combination with the new skills I am learning at Middlesex to better serve my clients.
Favorite MCC class:I really enjoyed Nursing Professor Marie Ryder’s lectures on psychoeducation. She is a dynamic teacher and thoroughly enjoys what she does. There is a need for good, caring nurses in this area, since many individuals suffer from psychological illness.
Favorite MCC moment:
The clinical experiences in the Nursing Program have been very challenging. The instructors have high expectations and push you to achieve. The level of performance a student must maintain is intense.
I plan to continue to work at Lawrence General Hospital in my new role as a nurse. Nursing can lead in many directions: higher-level education, specialization, management, and most importantly, a skill set that is marketable and personally fulfilling.
