Improving Academic Confidence Together

IMPACT is a peer mentorship program at the Los Angeles County College of Nursing and Allied Health. These student mentors volunteer to provide support to fellow students (whom we call proteges). The protege benefit by receiving service and assistance. The mentor benefit by developing leadership skills and professionalism. The college benefits by cultivating excellent students. The County benefits by turning out outstanding nurses. 

For those reasons, the Alumni Association is proud to offer our scholarship called The Mentor's Mark to support IMPACT. 

Please meet this semester's student mentors!

Raymond Troung, 2020-II

Hello my name is Raymond Truong. I am in the 4 semester. My field of interest is ER, ICU or Oncology Nurse. Although these are my fields of interest my passion would be teaching. I plan to continue my nursing education and earn my masters and hopefully become an instructor at LA CONAH. 


Nursing school is a difficult journey and I would not have made it through without guidance from my mentors. I am proud to be a mentor and know all the benefit this program provides and hope this program continues to guide future students

Adriana Vargas, 2019-II

Hi, my name is Adriana Vargas, and I am a fourth semester student at LA County school of Nursing. I am interested in working in ER and ICU, I love being able to make an impact on someone’s life when they are facing their worst days. I plan on staying and working for any county facility because I love the population the county facilities serves. I am currently enrolled at Cal State Fullerton to earn my BSN. I plan to continue my education to become a nurse practitioner and provide for the underprivileged community. My end goal would be to come back and be an instructor at LA county school of nursing. I am also a mentor for 1st-3rd semester students. 


Nursing school was definitely a challenge and I couldn’t have done it without my family and friends’ support. From all the tears, sleepless nights and bad anxiety before exams and clinical was all worth it. Nursing school has taught me to always allow some time for yourself and to never give up. The people you meet along the way will be lifelong friendships       This school was very challenging but like they say “There is no education like it in the world” I can say I am lucky to soon call myself a graduate from La county school of Nursing.

Bethany Sand-Dahl, 2020-II

My name is Bethany Sand-Dahl. I am currently a student at CONAH. My background is in fashion design and I am often questioned why I wanted to change careers. I made the transition to nursing after 10 years in fashion, when I came to the realization that I wanted to work directly with people in a way that was meaningful. Nursing school has taught me to be confident and decisive. I've overcome challenges in the classroom and in clinicals, and am excited for the future. After graduation my hope is to work at County in burns or wound care, and continue my nursing education getting my BSN and eventually my MSN. I love caring for patients' needs and cleaning and redressing wounds is a measurable way of caring for a person that truly resonates with me.
