Client Testimonials

"I was seeking a mentor who could assist me with structuring a new route into a BSN program. Susan Odegaard Turner provided me with a coach who could accommodate all of my needs. Not only was Susan able to suggest appropriate schools that would fit my qualifications, but she also assisted me in building a nursing oriented resume, finding alternate paths into a BSN program (e.g. LVN to RN to BSN), and locating scholarships to fund my education. Susan was an indispensable resource for me while applying to nursing school, providing me with the confidence to persevere through the research and application process. Now, as I begin attending CSU Sacramento's BSN Program in the Spring of 2012, I thank my coach and mentor Susan for helping me get here."

"I met Susan Odegaard Turner early in my career. Susan recognized my skills and gave me an opportunity to be cross-trained as a Neuro Diagnostic Technician. Susan coached me frequently, allowing me time to discuss fears and questions with her. Susan always listened to me and made me feel that she had my back and believed in my ability even though I had self doubt. One thing that Susan said to me made me more confident She said, "Always put the patient first when faced with making what might be a 'critical' decision". "If you put the patient first, you will most likely make the right choice or decision."

Because of this mentoring I went on to become a skilled Neuro Diagnostic Tech and later a supervisor over multiple areas . My management style was based on years of mentoring and feedback from Susan. Susan continues to mentor me and support me 25 plus years later. To coin a phrase from Oprah Winfrey; I feel that I have been a student in Susan Odegaard Turner's "Master Class".
