Senior nursing major Danica Adoc was nominated for the Outstanding Student award for Natural Science, Mathematics, and Engineering department.

“I felt really honored to have been selected by the nursing department,” Adoc said. “I could not believe it, and I was really surprised.”

Adoc was inspired to go into nursing because of her passion for science and helping others. After graduation her goals are to pass the board exam NCLEX to become a licensed nurse at the telemetry unit at San Joaquin Community Hospital.

“In addition to being passionate about science and helping others, I thought that I have the capability to be in a profession where I can help individuals lead better lives.” Adoc said.

Adoc is involved in the California Nursing Student Associations, the Community Preventive Health Collaborative, a member of Alpha Chi and Sigma Theta Tau. She also enjoys playing tennis and traveling.

Adoc’s experience at CSU Bakersfield has been filled with many memories shared with friends she has made during her years at CSUB. Adoc also stated that her nursing professors were all great.

“As experienced nurses who are passionate about the work that they do, they all did an excellent job in teaching our class with the knowledge and wisdom to become the best nurse that I can be in the future,” Adoc said.

For current and incoming freshmen, Adoc advises students to continue their studies at CSUB.

“Stay motivated and work hard,” said Adoc.
