OHSU School of Nursing Class of 2012

melissa-ozmoreEveryone who becomes a nurse has a story about how nursing satisfies something deep inside them. My experience at the OHSU School of Nursing has given me so much. I love being part of the university hospital because it's all about learning, especially in the ER where I'm spending most of my senior year.

I'm president of the Student Nurses Association of Portland, which gives me a great opportunity to work in outreach, professional development, and fundraising projects, and hone my leadership skills.

This year I was even the proud recipient of the Helene Fuld Health Trust Scholarship and recognized at the National Student Nurse Association annual conference in Salt Lake City, which I would have never known about if it was not for OHSU.
