What do you like best about the nursing major?

I love nursing because each day you are faced with a different challenge, and knowing that I could be helping save people’s lives makes me feel great about the career I chose.

Is there a professor within the nursing program who has made a difference to you during your studies?

I really love all of my professors, but if I had to pick one, I'd have to pick Professor Laurie Davis. She's always been willing to help me and she's always teaching me new skills. She makes clinical fun, and she's easy to talk to.
