    New Student Interview
    5
    Upon initial interaction, you can tell Dr. Amaro is genuinely interested in her students' success. She is very knowledgable and seem to be very pragmatic. While reminding you there will be hard work involved, it's still refreshing to have an educator who actually remembers there is life outside of school and who is open to even giving advice on how to make it all fit together. Picked up quite a few useful tips in just this single interview. I look forward to this new challenge ahead knowing I have people like Dr. Amaro in my corner.

    Dr. Amaro was such a pleasant surprise. I had missed my original appointment and began to panic a little, but she kindly squeezed me in the following day. Under normal circumstances, I would have been excited and eager to this interview and move further along in this nursing process. However, after a very challenging three or four days I felt like a hallow shell of my normal self and it was hard to hide my exhaustion, which further enhanced my anxiety about the meeting. All of that worry was for absolutely nothing! Her pleasant demeanor and sense of humor put my mind at ease immediately. She truly does care for our success and truly takes her job to heart and it shows. I am looking forward to working with her during this journey to becoming an RN. Take comfort in knowing she is on our (us students) side and rooting for us! Thanks again for your kindness. --Hannah

    Dr. Amaro has a pleasant way of presenting the brutal truths about the task required to succeed in Schoolcraft's nursing program. She displayed genuine interest in ensuring my academic success and showed me how she has prepared to provide all the tools I will need. I have no doubt that Dr. Amaro will play a significant role in my success, and I will definitely squeeze every ounce of aid she is willing to provide.

    Dr Amaro is such a wonderful instructor, i met her for my nursing interview but she ended up helping me with my Pharmacology handout notes. Can you imagine she even got out her textbook to explain to me more of what is required of me in this class and what to do to succeed .I really want to set up another appointment of see her again if that is permitted.

    The meeting that changed ME!

    Today I met with Dr. Amaro, and before I walked in I was a different kinda ME. I walked in feeling absolutely hopeless and walked out feeling like I can literally do anything I set my mind to. I have felt blinded by negativity and I now feel as if a positive mindset will do get big things. The only regret I have about driving all the way out here today is that I didn’t have the time to come sooner , so I can calm down & believe in myself before today! Thank you Dr. Amaro for helping me see that I am capable of many things, and I plan to work my butt off until I get the result I not only need, but WANT
