The Dual Degree in Nursing Program

I think it is my duty to write a bit about this awesome program which I am a part of called the Dual Degree in Nursing (DDN) program at the University of Rochester. What is the DDN program? As the title infers, students of the DDN program receive two degrees—one of their choice and a second for[…]

Introducing Me, Charlotte!

Hello, everyone! My name is Charlotte Pillow. I was born in Manhattan and grew up in Ridgewood, New Jersey. Now, I am back in New York as a freshman at the University of Rochester. I plan to study public health, nursing, and possibly cluster in dance or psychology. I absolutely loved my first month of[…]

Rochester Admissions Update: Early…Huge…Wow…

Rochester’s growth as a top private university has been epic since 2006. We’ve added 17 campus buildings and a second (and huge) retail center next to campus (with Moe’s and Insomnia Cookies … dangerous to my diet). We’ve added 21 new degree programs, including two bachelor’s in business, four in public health, and exclusive blends of arts with technology.[…]

League of Librarians

After devouring some turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes, and topping it all off with fancy desserts, I bet the Thanksgiving break was awesome. I won’t be surprised to see some of us undo our deeds at the gym over the next couple of days. Anyway, as I was cleaning my room over the break, I came[…]

How I Created My Own Degree

Open curriculum sounds almost too good to be true. I remember thinking, “No way. Open curriculum? That can’t be right.” But it is! Some courses require prerequisites, but you are otherwise allowed free reign to pick and choose whatever courses fulfill your educational goals.   In addition, the University of Rochester invites its students to create[…]

Music on the River Campus

Like I mentioned in my "About Me" post a while back, I'm a clarinetist and saxophonist. Since I ended up applying to Rochester for computer science, and not the Eastman School of Music, I assumed that music would take a back seat when I got to college. Thankfully, I was completely wrong. Within the first week[…]

Two Down, One to Go: School of Nursing Update

This week, I began my third and final semester of nursing school. The day is filled with orientation, introductions and scheduling for the upcoming semester. The majority of our coursework is related to medical and surgical nursing in a variety of specialties. We will also have a community health experience and projects throughout the semester.[…]

‘Learn, Discover, Heal, Create’ at Strong Memorial Hospital

There is a lot I could say to update you on my nursing school experience thus far. However, what I have enjoyed most has been my clinical experiences at the University of Rochester's Medical Center; Strong Memorial Hospital. As you may know, Strong is a "teaching hospital." The University of Rochester School of Medicine and Dentistry[…]

School of Nursing Update!

As you may know from my previous post about obtaining a nursing degree at Rochester, I began the Accelerated Bachelors Program for Non-Nurses (ABPNN) at the University of Rochester School of Nursing (SON) back in January. This program is a three-semester second-degree program for individuals with a bachelor’s degree in something other than nursing. After completing[…]
