Hi, I'm Bianca, a National University bachelor of biomedical
science graduate and current student in the university's doctor of
chiropractic program. I'm involved in many activities on campus,
since I'm the trimester representative for my class and also work
as a student ambassador.
I was shown the benefits of natural medicine at a young age
through a positive personal experience, which led me to become a
part of the science community. I knew I wanted to ultimately enter
a health profession, even in high school.
I attended two years of college at Wittenberg University in
Ohio. Although I had great experiences and amazing opportunities
there, the price of attending another two years there was too high
for me. I switched my plan when I found out about National
University's bachelor degree completion program in biomedical
sciences. Not only was this a more cost effective option, but also
a perfect way to launch me into graduate school!
The science-based courses offered here in the BS program give
you a chance to focus on one category of knowledge, while still
exploring other branches of the health sciences. For example,
you can choose from medical Spanish, exercise physiology,
diagnostic art, and many nutrition classes.
The classes offered here at National University give depth to
each field of study. The program prepares you for your continued
education and sets you up for accomplishing your goals--whether
your goals lie in public health, research, alternative or
I would have to say that biochemistry and anatomy were my
favorite classes in the BS program. Anatomy gave me my first
encounter working with cadavers, while biochemistry challenged the
way I saw science. Both contributed to my love for nutrition,
physical therapy, and the importance of maintaining overall
Here's my advice for those considering National University's BS
program: Take advantage of the online and accelerated courses
offered here. If you plan on continuing your education with
an advanced degree at National University, or any other medical
school, then I highly recommend taking courses like Anatomy I and
II, Biochemistry, and Medical Terminology.
I hope my experience can offer you the insight that you're
looking for. Feel free to contact me, or any of our other student
ambassadors, by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
Best of luck,
