Erica Forcina is following in her aunt’s footsteps and hopes to continue down this path. The sophomore nursing major from Wilmington, Delaware, plans on becoming a pediatric nurse- just like her aunt. And it was her aunt’s love for Neumann University that brought Erica to campus.
“My aunt went to Neumann and she loved it. Now she works at the NICU (neonatal intensive care unit) at Children’s Hospital. I toured here and fell in love too,” she said.
Erica now shares a bond with the other nursing majors that enhances her experience at Neumann.
“Most of my friends are nursing majors. Since we have many of the same classes, we’ve become good friends. We all understand how hard it can be, so we support each other,” she said.
Erica credits Neumann’s professors and smaller class sizes with helping her succeed.
“The professors are very knowledgeable. They’re all nurses so they can relate. The small class size is really great. Everyone is ready and willing to help you get adjusted to college.”
