When I worked in the ICU at UPMC Western Maryland, I saw strong, knowledgeable nurses. I’m looking forward to be able to be my strongest, most confident self, so I can reach out to other nursing students who want to learn.

Stephanie Lusk

When I got to college, nursing was what I interested in. When I thought about my role models when I was younger, the strongest women I knew were nurses, and I love that caring is one of the most essential elements in being a nurse.
