I work as a Respiratory Technician in Manhattan. I deliver and set up home respiratory equipment to patients with all types of illnesses all over the Tri-state area. Normally our primary patients are 9/11 first responders but now, of course, I go to a lot more COVID-19 patients who need oxygen or other medical supplies. This includes oxygen concentrators, tanks, CPAP/sleep apnea devices, carbon dioxide monitoring, home ventilators etc.
I am almost done with the Respiratory Care program at NCC and it has greatly helped with my current work. I can speak with a lot more authority and confidence when patients have questions about their equipment or conditions. That in turn gives patients more confidence that they will get proper treatment and can rely on the people supplying them.
One of my favorite quotes is from Booker T. Washington - “Those who are happiest are those who do the most for others.”
I am a marketing major and will graduate in 2025. After a rough start at a large four-year university, I chose to attend Nassau Community College. It has a nice campus, a great community, and besides — my mom went here! My best experience so far has been my in-class presentations.

I transferred to NCC to pursue a degree in Nursing. After some sudden life-changing events I needed to be back home with my family. Nassau was the best educational opportunity for me, especially considering my chosen career path. One of my favorite experiences at the College so far has been forming a sense of community with my peers.

My major is Biology and I am in my second year at NCC. I originally came to Nassau Community College because of the smaller class sizes and proximity to my home but the terrific faculty and flexible class schedules are great as well. As a science major, I would have to say one of my favorite experiences at Nassau has been the hands-on work that we do in the labs during biology classes.
