Nursing Major
Transferred from Fordham University

Genna Giordano came from Fordham University, where she earned a bachelor’s degree in psychology. “As a second degree student, I was looking for a program that would help me to achieve my goal of becoming a nurse and would prepare me for my career,” she said.

“Adelphi has a great reputation, an amazing nursing program and a really incredible faculty.”

Giordano, due to graduate in August 2016 from the Accelerated B.S. in Nursing program, added, “I’ve always been interested in medicine. I wanted a career where I could make an active difference in someone else’s life.”

Although she has not yet decided on a specific aspect of nursing, she said, “Eventually, I’d like to teach.”

Giordano is active in several campus organizations—Student Nurses Acting for Progress (SNAP), Tau Sigma and Habitat for Humanity.

“My favorite thing about SNAP,” she said, “is the connections I get to make with other student nurses. It’s a great way to share our experiences and discuss our struggles.”

As treasurer of the Adelphi chapter of Tau Sigma Transfer Honor Society since September 2015, she said she gets “the opportunity to meet with transfer students from all different backgrounds, and we can discuss in an open forum all of our experiences transferring into Adelphi.
