UConn School of Nursing, class of 2010
I am a junior in the school of nursing. My family is from Puerto Rico and I grew up in New Haven. I always knew that I wanted to be involved in the health care field and that nursing would be a great profession for me. Which branch of nursing I will pursue is still undetermined, but I want to help others and learn more about various health care issues.
UST offers many opportunities to work with underprivileged populations and to engage with students from other health care fields. I have volunteered within hospitals and schools in order to help others learn more about their health and nutrition. We all bring something unique to the program that enables us to work proficiently as a team. My clinical experience, coupled with my ideas, will allow me to have many opportunities to contribute to UST.
