After having my daughter, I knew that I would no longer be able to attend school full-time or continue at the university at which I was previously enrolled. I also knew that I still wanted to continue my education. SUNY Nassau was the best option for me, due to its affordable tuition, proximity to my house and -- especially -- the availability of the Children's Greenhouse right on campus. I was accepted into the SUNY Nassau/Empire State College four-year nursing program and am currently working through my first semester as a nursing student.
Without the Greenhouse I genuinely would have had no chance at completing my education. It's given me the ability to attend classes with the peace of mind that my daughter is being cared for in an amazing, safe environment. The staff has always been extremely helpful about scheduling, too. I bonded with other moms there who are dealing with situations like mine. And the Empowerment Grant has allowed me to return to school with only the weight of tuition on my shoulders.
Without the pressure of paying for childcare I can spend more time studying and preparing for class, which is imperative for success in the nursing program. I would absolutely recommend SUNY Nassau and the Children's Greenhouse to others, especially those looking for a more flexible schedule or cost-efficient college. I hope to graduate with my bachelor's degree in nursing and eventually explore other fields in medicine.
My decision to attend NCC after high school stemmed from a variety of reasons. I had a lack of direction on what career to pursue, and I certainly noted the astronomical tuition costs at the schools that offered me admission. When doing my research, I noticed NCC's commitment towards its students.

I am a first-generation college student and have been paying my way through college. I had previously attended NCC because of its affordability and location. I had such good memories from my first time attending that it made sense to go back to finish my degree. People also recommended Nassau's Surgical Technology program to me because it is one of the best in the area.

NCC was a smart choice for me because I wasn't really sure what my passion was. Nassau gave me a chance to figure it out while not having to carry the financial burden of switching my major should I want to make a change.
