Real stories of alumni finding their way -- by Diana Marginean
Mar 6, 2020
STORY by Diana Marginean, BScN graduate
First of all, so much has changed throughout the past eight years of my academic and career journey — I could have never planned all of this out, so don’t stress too much about having it all figured out from the start.
In 2012, I started by pursuing my Bachelor of Science in Nursing at McMaster University directly after high school. Like many other students, I struggled the first two years of my undergraduate studies both academically and mentally. Nursing school can really take a toll, especially with in-hospital clinical rotations. However, it was here that I began to grow and develop my skills, push my limits, and get outside of my comfort bubble. My science courses taught me how to study and provide a good foundation to work in many fields of nursing. My clinical rotations taught me how to interact, care for, and critically think when working with many different types of patients — especially during my mental health placement. Shortly before graduating, I still was unclear about my future career path and didn’t feel ready to start working — which is OKAY!
