Welcome to Los Angeles Pierce College,
School of Nursing.
How exciting it is to become a registered nurse.
The ability to provide health care to people throughout the world is a time honored profession.
In second semester you will explore the nursing profession by examining and learning about psychiatric diseases
and disorders and what to do to provide health care to those individuals who may have these mental illnesses.
It is amazing how knowledge gives you power, the power to administer nursing care correctly to patients and their families,
the power to facilitate good health and improved quality of life. Good luck and success in all that you do.
I am looking forward to meeting you in the second semester.
