College of Nursing Champions of 2017 SISC Street Dance Competition

Staying afloat in a BSN program demands a considerable amount of physical, mental and emotional hardiness. Nursing students are generally hesitant to sign-up for extra-curricular activities since it usually entails setting aside extra time from their hectic academic work and clinical duties for meetings and practices. However, this academic year 10 brave and talented students from BSN II & BSN IV took on the challenge to represent the College of Nursing in this year’s Street Dance Competition.

Practices were usually after school and sometimes after a tiring day of clinical duty rotation. Finding a common time to practice and rehearse was another major difficulty. Despite their frustrations they were challenged to work within the limitations of their given situation. In some way they learned to be flexible, resourceful and to think-out-of the-box. The saying that says that “Circumstances and events that we see as setbacks are often times the very things that launch us into periods of intense growth” was the most valuable lesson learned from this experience more important than the honor of being awarded as champions. --CAV
