Ruthanne Ashworth.
  • Hometown: Hornell, NY
  • Undergraduate Education: Bachelor's in Nursing, College at Brockport
  • Current Program: Doctorate of Nursing Practice, Family Nursing


I chose UB SON because a co-worker recommended the school to me and it is an online SUNY program.

Areas of Interest

I am interested in education and [being a] hospitalist.

Professional Goals

I want to continue to teach at SUNY Alfred in the AAS and BSN programs, and continue to work per-diem as a nurse practitioner.


My hope is that this scholarship will enable me to implement positive change in both the academic and patient care settings.
