3. Explain the importance of a Jesuit education.
At SLU, the focus is on developing a person as a whole, which is going to benefit me as a nurse. So many schools focus only on the technical skills, but SLU also teaches you to focus on the patient as a person. The nursing program strives to help each student become a better person, which will, in turn, help create better nurses.
4. What are your future plans?
To become a nurse and eventually a nurse anesthetist.
5. Why are gifts to scholarships important?
My scholarship is a huge reason why I am here. There are less expensive schools available that many people may only attend because they can’t afford an education at a place like SLU. Scholarships help open a door for students who would not be able to be here without help. I hope to someday have the opportunity to donate to scholarships so I can provide the same quality education to another student, much like what has been given to me.
