Lots of options. That’s what appealed to Morgan about majoring in nursing. And sure enough, with her bachelor’s degree, she’ll be able to move into direct patient care, research, education, or pretty much any area she wants to. And because her mom has always worked in health care settings, she discovered long ago that every area of health care offers a rewarding and exciting career.
The surprise for Morgan, though, has been the intimate environment within URI’s College of Nursing. She’s created a network of friends and faculty, both in and outside of nursing. And she says the interactions between nursing faculty and students are very personal. “They make it clear they’re here for us, to help us grow and learn as both future nurses and individuals,” she said. She’s been impressed by the ability and willingness of the faculty to adapt lecture and clinical materials to the most current healthcare practices.
Her big idea, for now anyway, is to make sure her patients know she is there just to serve them specifically – probably something she picked up from her professors here. Whatever Morgan winds up doing in nursing, we’re sure she’s going to do it well.
