    full potential The difference maker I think it s the small close knit campus community that sets the nursing program and the college in general apart from other places The small class sizes at Hesston provide closer interaction between instructors and students making it easier to communicate with instructors if you re struggling or need advice The faculty see students as more than a grade in the grade book but as a whole person Instructors are willing to work with each student to make sure they understand the concepts Hesston faculty and staff are great at giving a balance of hands on experience and book learning It s evident that they genuinely care about all aspects of each of their students lives not just in the classroom or clinical settings but with the everyday parts as well Instead of sitting for hours at a time listening to our instructors lecture class consists of interaction from not only other nursing staff but classmates as well I appreciate how class is taught by using different teaching methods such as the use of PowerPoint group activities and hands on learning I also value how time in class is spent focusing on holistic care of the patient I enjoy being challenged to think critically in the classroom and clinical settings and I appreciate that instructors set the bar for learning high Above and beyond My Hesston Experience so far has given me a zest for learning If I so desire I could confidently go on to the next level to get my B S N thanks to the faculty and staff who invest so much time in me and help me achieve my goals What her instructors say Maria is kind caring and compassionate and attentive to the needs of those she serves She
