Both shared their experiences with the CTC students of traveling throughout the United States as contract nurses as well as their experiences working through the pandemic.
“These ladies were incredible! Made me want to be a nurse even more,” said Piggott High School and BRTC CTC student Autumn Covert, “I loved, loved all the stories they told us about their adventures, and their lives. I couldn’t ask for better speakers!”
