Meet Our Alums

  • "What led Ashley to Nursing? I wanted to become a nurse because when I was 16 or 17, my nephew was born; he was very ill."
  • "I think what surprised me most about being a nurse was how quickly you bond with the patient, and you are so dedicated and interested in their story and how it turns out, and you just become this huge advocate."
  • "I think nursing is so important. And the most important role for any nurse is to be an advocate when you have a patient."
  • "“I realized that my biggest regret in life was not sticking with nursing, no matter how hard it was.""
  • "“... a mammogram can save somebody's life, ... a colonoscopy can save somebody's life. One simple visit a year can make a difference.""
  • "I take a lot of medical and surgical teams to countries like Sierra Leone, Tanzania; we're getting ready to take a team to Ghana this spring."
  • "She touched my life. Although the prognosis was very slim, her touch, and her compassion, and her caring helped me to be the nurse that I am today."
