Why UB SON?

The distance learning format, affordable tuition and an excellent reputation inspired me to apply to the UB SON. 

Areas of Interest

Currently, I am interested in geriatric and adult health, but in the future I’d like to broaden my interests into different stages of the lifespan. 

Professional Goals

Based on my professional experience as a geriatric adult NP, I found that urgent psychiatric care tends to be delayed due to limited providers and clinics. I would like to become a resource for other medical professionals when they are looking for help in the psychiatric field.

Grateful

I am very thankful and honored to receive this award. This scholarship will lighten my financial burden and allow me to focus on my academic achievements.
