Even though Sara Mays just graduated in May 2016, she’s wasting no time in giving back to Reynolds and encouraging her fellow Nursing alumni to do the same. Posting on Facebook, Sara wrote, “New grads: I charge you to help out future Nursing students. With the first paycheck as an RN, pay some bills, save a little, celebrate a little. With the second, I urge you to give to the NCLEX Challenge (especially if you benefited from it) - a fund that helps graduating Reynolds nursing students pay for the NCLEX and state licensure." Donations to the NCLEX Challenge help graduates sit for the NCLEX-RN exam while the classroom material and clinical experiences are still fresh.
Thanks and congratulations to Sara. She passed her boards a few weeks ago and has landed a job as an ICU nurse in Missouri, where she lives with her husband.
Giving to the J. Sargeant Reynolds Community College Educational Foundation provides much-needed and appreciated support for Reynolds programs and students. Making an online gift is easy and secure. Visit www.reynolds.edu/givenow
