“When this (pandemic) hit, I realized I had a set of skills that could be beneficial to the community. And when the call was put out for volunteers, I think it took me fewer than three minutes to respond,” Timothy recalled. “Since then, we’ve tested over 2,500 Burlington County residents. It’s been a lot of work, but it’s also been very rewarding. This is exactly what we had been training for.”

“My time at RCBC was the beginning of not only friendships and networking possibilities, but it was also where my excitement for pursuing a higher education ignited,” Lorenzo shared. “RCBC is filled with some of the best and most dedicated professors offered by any institution. I still keep in contact with professors and continue to lean on them for support and guidance.”

“I talked to nurses from different hospitals in the area and they all spoke so highly of nurses that came from our program, so I knew that this was exactly where I needed to be. I think the most memorable part of the program so far has been the friendships I have made,” Pacitti remarked. “The clinical experiences and each of my professors have all been incredible in their own right, but the friendships I have made in the last year or so have been absolutely indescribable. Nursing school is truly an experience you can't fully understand until you're in it, and it sounds so cliche, but these are the friendships I will keep forever.”

“My heart is overjoyed to offer the least little bit of comfort during this nightmarish environment that we are living in. Although most of us cannot get the N95 mask that doctors and nurses wear, it’s helpful to have something to cover our mouths and noses to help mitigate the spread of the virus. I really wish I could do more, but the little that I do fills my soul with joy.”

“My main focus going into nursing was to help others who may not be able to help themselves. There’s such a reward and benefit to doing that,” Paul said. “When I see people in need, especially when it comes to their health, I try to do anything I can to help them. We’re all in this world together, and it’s important to be there for one another.”

“I was able to complete about half of my major all online, and as a busy girl, that was so incredibly helpful. I completed all of my Gen Eds at a fraction of the cost and applied them to my current bachelor's degree! Studying at RCBC was a total no-brainer for me,” Engelhardt shared.

“I see many students struggle and talk about quitting. I tell them my story and encourage them to keep trying. It took 32 years to put on this cap and gown and as long as I'm working at RCBC, I will continue to encourage our students to never give up on their dreams. With so much negativity being shoved down society’s throat, someone has to show people the light at the end of the tunnel,” McMullen shared.

“I have been in business my whole life, and I think women in business have come a long way. I love working with people and marketing to determine what is going to appeal to consumers, really help them and implement the plan,” Young said.

“Ten years ago I thought that college was this strict, rigid institution, but what I’ve found is that it is actually the opposite; RCBC is a place that nurtures creativity, raw talent and the unorthodox while providing access to some of the smartest people I’ve ever met who challenge me to be better than I was yesterday,” Jiosi remarked.
