Quotation Mark

The School of Nursing has been such a supportive community. After graduating, I had five job offers. And I ended up getting the job that seemed the most impressive of all my med-surg opportunities. I had a leg up in knowing the climate and culture of each of the University's units — to recognize what would be the best fit for me.
