I am a current Sophomore at Northwest Vista College going for my Associates of Science with a Pre-Nursing major. I plan on continuing school for a BSN at either UIW or Texas A&M to become a Registered Nurse. I’ve recently joined the TFC team and have already been introduced to an amazing staff and families under this organization. I hope for many more meaningful greetings and participation at TFC.
