we do things Together as a Family
Our Traditions are good reasons for why so many choose to be part of
the Thomasian Nursing family
OUR 15 REASONS WHY
We enter and exit The Arch hand-in-hand
It's UST Tradition to enter the Arch as Freshmen and exit as Seniors, complete with a welcoming and send-off party
We bond over our difficulties
From the stress of organic chemistry up to the printing of your final thesis manuscript, your block mates have your back
We monitor the weather
Because going to school in an all-white uniform during a downpour isn't easy, but we carry it well
We learn how to cook
For nutrition and diet therapy class, we bring our culinary skills to try our hand at preparing meals for specific patients
We starch our aprons and polish our shoes
The Capping & Pinning Ceremonies is a rite of passage we go through in 2nd year to signify the start of actual patient care
We "Meet the Parents"
We have Homeroom periods with our faculty advisers. And an annual Parent-Teacher Conference too.
We do camp-ins and sleepovers
Our classroom is the world. We have a community immersion program in 3rd year, and we go on retreat before graduation
We do early-morning and late evenings
Our duty hours have us up running at 6 AM, and our case presentations keep us up at night. But we conquer!
We share the joy of "firsts"
First scrub-in for surgery, first newborn delivery, first immunization and many other firsts are shared in good company
We travel like pros
We visit our partner schools and go on cultural exchange trips. We not only learn, we also get to enjoy the experience of travel
We party for one week straight
During Nursing week, we let loose. We eat. We dance. We throw on some color. And we celebrate!
We work through our (shift) differences
We go on AM/PM/Night shifts for the Practicum and go on duty with hospital staff. This is as real as it gets!
We GIVE it to GOD
Because the family that prays together, conquers together!
We prepare for and pass the boards together
From enrichment classes to the intensive review program, to the oath taking.
We celebrate Christmas like no other
We usually throw a pre-party before the Paskuhan. To bond and be merry!
