The nursing instructors are knowledgeable, very helpful and have a genuine interest in teaching and growing a new generation of registered nurses.
When D. Steven Pearson decided to pursue a career in Nursing, he turned to Thomas Nelson Community College for the education. Since earning an associate degree in 2010, he has earned Bachelor's and Master's Degrees in nursing from Old Dominion University and is now a family nurse practitioner at Pediatrics of Oyster Point in Newport News. "The nursing instructors are knowledgeable, very helpful and have a genuine interest in teaching and growing a new generation of registered nurses," Pearson said. "The program is extremely accommodating to both the younger student as well as the older student with a family. The academic portion of the program is rigorous, and the clinical hours and experiences are perfect for training and developing new nurses."
After completing the program at Thomas Nelson, Pearson was hired as a staff nurse on a telemetry floor and later as a Neonatal Intensive Care Unit staff registered nurse before becoming a primary care provider at Pediatrics of Oyster Point.
