Alumnae share insights on careers in nursing

On Tuesday, October 18, we welcomed six alumnae to present to students about their specialized career field in Nursing. Students heard from a Cardiac Perfusionist, Infusion Nurse, Nursing Professor, Postpartum Nurse, NICU Nurse, and Hematology/Oncology Nurse.
