Date of Graduation
Bachelor of Science in Nursing
This past summer and into my final semester in the Eleanor Mann School of Nursing, I became a student nurse intern at Washington Regional Medical Center in the Cardiology department. Heart disease and other heart-related morbidities are on the rise within our population, especially as the baby-boomer generation continues to age – and healthcare must follow suit. The Cardiology department combined with the Walker Heart Institute of Washington Regional is a champion within Northwest Arkansas for the best care related to the heart, and I had the incredible opportunity to serve and learn from their talented healthcare team. Through my internship, I have learned about several different cardiovascular procedures, what it means to cater care to the individual, how to advocate for patients, and the vital importance of holding on to hope in adversity.
