ARC helped me focus while preparing for my state board exam for nursing.

Where did ARC take you personally? Are you engaged in community work that is ARC-like?

I feed the homeless monthly with the Academy of Medical-Surgical Nurses.

Did ARC teach you what we were supposed to teach you? Did we teach you anything that was a surprise or outside of the learning objectives?

Yes; to always give back to the community.

Share a great memory about ARC/IWU.
