Hey everyone!!! I am excited to be blogging about my experience as a student in an accelerated direct-entry advance practice nursing program. So where should I begin? I graduated HC in May of 2010. I was very involved with numerous organizations. I was BSU Co-Chair and Co-Chair of the Haiti Relief Initiative my senior year. Worked in Residence Life & Housing for 3 years as an RA. I was a student member of the Holy Cross Alumni Association for my junior and senior year. I was a Peer Mentor in the Peer Mentoring Program my junior and senior year. I am also a recipient of the Presidential Service Award, an award that is given to nine seniors for their contributions to the college and greater worcester community.
Currently I am at the University of Pennsylvania Nursing School where I am in their accelerated BSN/MSN program where I am studying to become a nurse-midwife. I am also a Graduate Associate in one of the college houses at UPENN. My story of why I wanted to become a nurse-midwife is an interesting one however, that will be my next post because I have an event that I need to get going to! Stay tuned 🙂
