Nhung’s decision to pursue a career in physical therapy was an easy one.
“I like making little differences that bring smiles,” says Nhung. “Having someone say ‘thank you’ to me is more than a blessing.”
At North Central College, she’s not alone in that regard. “Everyone here is willing to help without any hesitation,” says Nhung, who grew up in Vietnam. “I transferred from a community college where I was not able to have one-on-one time with my professors. Here, however, the professors are absolutely dedicated to helping with any questions I have—even if they’re not related to class.”
Nhung has taken full advantage of the opportunities North Central offers for students pursuing a career in physical therapy. She’s an active member of the College’s student-run Pre-Health Organization and regularly consults with the dedicated pre-health advisor.
“She makes sure I know everything about my field of interest and what I should be doing to get ready for it,” she says.
