A Day in the Life: Charlotte Campus Nursing Student Corey Mills

Charlotte campus student Corey Mills found her passion for nursing when her grandmother got sick while she was in high school.

“I watched my grandfather and the different nurses at the hospital take great care of her when she became ill,” she said. “It inspired me to start my journey of becoming a nurse and to help others when they need it most.”

Corey recently shared photos from a day in her life on the Chamberlain College of Nursing Instagram account. We checked back in with her to find out more about her experiences in the 3-Year Bachelor of Science in Nursing program.






What has been the best part of nursing school so far?

The best part of nursing school would be going to clinicals. Clinicals are a great way to interact with nurses and patients and to touch patients’ lives. The clinical instructors are so supportive and are interested in helping the students learn and practice skills in the real-life patient setting. It also helps having your classmates’ support and to see everyone working together as a team.
