EOF Student Stories
"As a senior at New Brunswick Science and Technology High School, I had the opportunity to interact with some of the nursing students from the CN-EOF program. They were so intelligent, motivated and encouraging that I knew I wanted to attend Rutgers College of Nursing, but I didn't think I would qualify. Through the encouragement of my guidance counselor and the student mentors from the program, I applied and I am so glad I did. As a student in the CN-EOF program, I receive so much especially in terms of the support classes in the sciences and nursing level courses. These classes make all the difference. I know I would not be in such good academic standing, were it not for the support provided by the CN-EOF program."

"CN-EOF saw in me what many people didn't; a promising future as a distinguished nurse leader. I even doubted whether or not I could become a nurse. Through their guidance, leadership development, academic support, and encouragement I am well on my way to becoming a professional nurse. I am so grateful to be a part of the CN-EOF program. If it weren't for CN-EOF, becoming a nurse would have been a mere dream that could never come true."

"As the first E.O.F. graduate of Rutgers University College of Nursing to receive a PhD in Nursing, I can truly say that the education I received and the experiences I had through E.O.F as a undergraduate and graduate student, laid the foundation for my excellence in clinical practice, education, research and leadership."
