Registered Nurse, Neonatal Intensive Care Unit, Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh of UPMC
As a nursing major, statistics was a required course. Having taken it through CHS, I was able to transfer that credit in and didn't have to take the course. This allowed me to take a lighter course load and left more time for my athletics since I cheered at Robert Morris University for Men's Basketball and Football.
The most valuable thing I learned from CHS is that it is important to start thinking and planning for college while in high school. CHS allowed me to have a taste of college classes while still in high school, and I was able to come to Pitt’s campus during my CHS enrollment. It made my transition to college classes easier having known what the caliber of classes are like and it was very convenient to transfer credits into college and be ahead of most people in my class!
