Program: MSN, DNP
Hometown: Rougemont, NC

Favorite part about being a nursing student at UNC-CH:  “I feel very supported by the educators I have had in both my MSN and DNP programs.  Their goals fall nothing short of providing the best education, allowing me to become successful in nursing while positively influencing others who may be contemplating a career in nursing.”

Goals after graduation: “I love clinical care so much that my goal is to still provide primary care to patients after attaining my DNP degree.  However, I do plan on seeking more leadership roles as my career in nursing progresses.”
