I have always had an interest in science and a passion for caring for others. Prior to nursing school, I was a patient care associate at Albany Medical Center on the cardiac intensive care unit. While I was there, I decided that it was the place for me and pursued a nursing degree. With a nursing degree, you can accomplish so many different things. Once you have that license, opportunities arise and the possibilities are endless.
The University at Buffalo School of Nursing is a highly regarded nursing program that offers an online learning environment. The flexibility of a completely online program is exactly what I was looking for to be able to advance my education while maintaining full-time employment.
I currently work in the critical care setting on a cardiac intensive care unit, and I love the complexity, acuity and non-uniformity of the unit.
I enjoy my free time by spending it with family and friends, working out and traveling.
After completing my bachelor's degree program, I plan to continue my education and enroll in a nurse practitioner program.
