The student pilot stated that the cross-country flight was unremarkable until the landing. When she knew the runway was made, she reduced power but the airplane touched down and bounced "severely" two times, and not so severe a third time. After the third bounce, the airplane remained on the runway but she realized there was a discrepancy with the nose landing gear. She taxied the airplane off the runway and asked for assistance.

The student pilot's improper flare and recovery from a bounced landing.
