Happy National Nurses Week!

National University - Fresno Campus kicked off National Nurses Week with a little donut and coffee social for their future nurses.  The students came together and got to know each other, eat some sweet treats, and snatch up some awesome NU swag.  How awesome are those NU tumblers?

National University - Rancho Bernardo Campus celebrated Nurses Week by getting together, eating pizza, playing nurse trivia, and winning small gifts!  Over 100 students joined in on the fun and were able to partake in the pizza that was generously donated by Little Cesar's.
