The 20 Most Inspiring Nursing School Photos of 2017

thank you

This year, Chamberlain College of Nursing students shared thousands of photos of their experiences in nursing school on Instagram.

Students documented everything from their notetaking style, to clinical experiences, to study sessions, to volunteer activities and beyond.

We love watching these students’ journeys through nursing school unfold, so we decided to hand-pick 20 photos that inspire us to achieve even more in 2018. 

Want to get in on the fun this year?
