Getting ready for fall semester with Professor Armstrong

Fall semester will be here before we know it and Professor Sharon Armstrong cannot wait to get back into the classroom for face-to-face in-person classes.

She teaches nursing classes at SC4 and loves sharing her passion for moms, babies and nursing in general with students.

The past year has presented challenges with using the hands-on teaching strategies often found in nursing. “I’m looking forward to direct interaction with students in my advanced assessment class,” said Armstrong. “It’s hard to teach assessment online.”

A career in healthcare is a great choice. Jobs are available in our community, and the training and education received at SC4 can take you anywhere in the United States — or around the world.

Armstrong continues, “Students will be challenged and discover, though nursing is a difficulty profession to prepare for, anything worth doing is worth working hard for.”

Advice for incoming students from Professor Armstrong:

  • Plan to devote the time needed to study and learn.
  • Reach out to your instructors early when you need help.
  • Get a planner or app with a calendar to get organized and plan ahead.
  • Take advantage of the many resources SC4 offers to help you be successful.

Armstrong also shared this about choosing SC4 for your educational journey, “The small class sizes and outstanding individual support cannot be beat — you truly are known at SC4.”

Registration for fall semester is open and classes begin the week of Aug. 23. A list of available on-campus and online can be viewed by visiting
