URI College of Nursing undergraduate student, Janelle Amoako (May 2015), recently completed the Hausman Fellowship at Massachusetts General Hospital which seeks to develop diversity in nursing workforce. Janelle is in community this semester, Honors student, and a member of our Diversity Committee in the College of Nursing. A quote by Janelle (p 6) that was released this week in “Caring” MGH Newsletter.
Fellow, Janelle Amoako, said, “I cannot describe how significant this experience has been for me. In this unique program, we have fellows who are Native American, Dominican, Nigerian, Puerto Rican, Taiwanese, Cape Verdean, Liberian, Jamaican, Vietnamese, Chinese, Mexican, Ghanaian, Peruvian, and Lebanese, and I learned something from every one of them. How amazing would it be to have this level of diversity as I begin my nursing career? There’s no telling what we’d be able to do.”
