Roshani entered nursing school in August 2015 with the hope she could help others. As a result of her Instagram account, she is off to an early and unexpected start to that mission.
Roshani, who is a BSN student at Chamberlain’s Addison campus, joined Instagram to document her journey through nursing school for herself, but the account quickly became something more.
In just a few short months, she has amassed nearly 700 followers – providing encouragement, offering advice and answering questions from Chamberlain student nurses across the country. She also interacts with followers going through the application process at Chamberlain or just looking for a nursing school.
Roshani will be answering questions live on Chamberlain’s Instagram account on Saturday, Jan. 16, from 9 am – noon CT. Participants are also welcome to post their questions for Roshani in advance of the event.
In anticipation of the Q & A, we asked Roshani a few questions about her experience as a first-year BSN student at Chamberlain:
Why did you choose to go into nursing?
When I was little, my father had cancer. At one point, he was so sick that doctors couldn’t do anything for him so he was just at home. I would be his nurse. When I came home from school, I was his initial caretaker until my mom got home from work, and that experience really stuck with me.
