KCC Stories: Nursing student Suzette Venturini balances studies with work, home-schooling her son

KCC Nursing student Suzette Venturini.

Suzette Venturini came to the Kellogg Community College Nursing Program after nearly a lifetime living abroad.

Venturini, 33, is originally from the Philippines. She met her husband while teaching English online, and the two eventually moved to Korea. They spent more than a year there before coming to the U.S. in 2013, where Venturini’s husband, also an English teacher, is from.

Venturini says she wants to become a nurse for self-improvement, and because “I feel like there’s a need for it, not just within my family but also in the community.”

She chose KCC’s Nursing Program even though it wasn’t the closest because she’d heard good things about the program and the instructors.

She started the program this fall and does clinical work at Medilodge of Marshall, all while working part-time at her in-laws’ bed and breakfast and home-schooling her 5-year-old son. Time management is key.

“It’s challenging, but doable,” Venturini says.
