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 traditional medicine.

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 wellness.

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 student_ambassadors@nuhs.edu.

Best of luck,
Bianca Page
