Polytech prepared me to jumpstart my business (LemaDawn Healthcare Staffing) with confidence. Not only have I gained the knowledge to be an excellent nurse, but I have also gained the drive and motivation to help others reach their goals and aspirations. Polytech allowed me to maintain a healthy work-life balance with their assortment of classes. I was able to go to school and take care of my family. Overall, this is a great program for all aspiring nurses.
