“The faculty at RSU make sure that students have the right tools and training to perform at their best. Becoming a paramedic and a nurse has been such a rewarding career choice for me. The work is often unpredictable and exciting, but this is the best job I’ve ever had because I know that I really can make a difference for people in their time of need.”
