"I chose to study at the UB School of Nursing because it was the best fit for the season of my life. I was about to graduate from the Rochester Institute of Technology (RIT) with a degree in Business Administration/Marketing. It was at that time that my mother was diagnosed with terminal cancer and ultimately lost her battle with cancer in a hospice unit in Rochester. A nurse in the unit was the first -- and only -- person to ask me if I understood what was happening with my mom. I thought, 'If I could only do what she does, how wonderful that would be.'
"I graduated from RIT (Rochester Institute of Technology) on a Saturday, and began my nursing pre-requisites the following Monday. I searched around local colleges for what would be the best fit. Already having another degree, the Accelerated [Baccalaureate] program met my wishes to learn with gazelle-like intensity and allowed me to get into the workforce quickly."
