Hear from a Nursing Alumnus
"Through this internship I was able to take on a full patient load, evaluate cultural competence in the provision of professional nursing care to my patient, practice skills learned in skill lab in nursing school, and finally function as a new graduate nurse… being able to excel and succeed within the clinical setting, this mentally prepared me for my future endeavors when finding a job, and for that, I am extremely grateful."
