Quotation Mark

The School of Nursing possesses a warm, kind, and inclusive atmosphere that rivals other departments I have been a part of. Here, I feel safe as an emerging researcher, knowing that the school is really invested in my career development. As a Latina, I was driven to stay here because of the School of Nursing’s outstanding commitment with cultural inclusion and awareness, not just within the School of Nursing community, but highlighting this importance in research as well.
