“PACE’S PROGRAM GAVE ME THE OPPORTUNITY TO INTERACT WITH A VERY DIVERSE POPULATION IN MY CLINICALS, SO I WAS WELL-PREPARED FOR MY FIRST JOB AS A CRITICAL CARE PA AT MONTEFIORE HOSPITAL.”

“PACE PROVIDES STUDENTS WITH MOSTLY HANDS-ON CLINICAL EXPERIENCES AT TOP HOSPITALS IN NYC, AND PREPARATORY SIMULATION WORK. THE OTHER TOP SCHOOL I LOOKED AT USES 50% CLINICAL EXPERIENCE. CHOOSING PACE WAS EASY.”

Sybil Olmo '15

Degree: M.S., Physician Assistant Studies

While Pace’s Physician Assistant Masters program was challenging, Hima chose Pace for its New York City location, giving her exposure to an extremely diverse patient population. She credits her professors with giving her the support she needed to complete her degree as well as sharing their own real-world clinical experiences in order that she reach her professional goal as a critical care physician assistant.

Degree: Accelerated Bachelors of Science in Nursing (ABSN)

Sybil decided to pursue a nursing degree at Pace University after working in real estate for 9 years in New York City and realized a nursing career would be more fulfilling. A good friend graduated from the accelerated BSN program at Pace and recommended it to Sybil. She ultimately made her decision to attend Pace based on clinical experience feedback and its overall reputation, particularly the high first-time pass rate of graduates on the NCLEX-RN exam. The hands-on hospital clinical experiences have been invaluable in helping her prepare to realize her dream of becoming a registered nurse.
