Nursing runs in my family, and I never really considered any other career. But when I struggled with science classes at the private college near my Oregon home, my professors suggested I try another occupation. A Google search led me to apply to Union College. From my first interview, I could see a difference—a deep spiritual faith, a strong support system, and faculty who cared about my success. Now I’m proud to be a Union College nurse.
