Nursing is her Calling
Hayden Lighty has been treating family mishaps for years. Now with her training in the Pre-Nursing program, she is poised to enter college to become an RN.
"Besides the great career prep, you will make new friends, and the instructors are great in helping you be your best."
Crescent senior Hayden Lighty is intrigued by the math and science applications in healthcare. As she learned human anatomy and physiology, as well as the calculations of various input and output of fluids and medicines, she became much more aware that it takes precise measurement, and she has been preparing in earnest for her career in healthcare in Francis Tuttle’s Pre-Nursing program.
There’s little wonder that she would end up in the healthcare industry. With five younger brothers, parents, grandparents and a host of other family members who have relied on her for varying levels of treatment and assistance since a young age, she has been caring for people for a long time.
Hayden has many friends and family who have attended Francis Tuttle, and she tells others who are considering whether to attend “Besides the great career prep, you will make new friends, and the instructors are great in helping you be your best.”
Hayden has been accepted to the University of Central Oklahoma to become a registered nurse after her training in high school. She’d like to work with mothers and babies, whether as newborns or later as infants. As the oldest of her siblings, and with her new depth of knowledge in healthcare, she’s off to a great start!
