A senior at Shawnee State University, Julie Price (Hometown: Proctorville, Ohio) has enjoyed the opportunity to gain clinical experience in her major. Pursuing a Bachelor of Science in Nursing, Price recently had the opportunity to administer vaccines to her fellow students, friends and professors at flu and COVID-19 vaccine clinics on campus.
“I chose nursing because I wanted to have a positive impact on people,” she said.
When she first learned she would be able to administer vaccines at the clinic, Price was nervous but excited about the opportunity to have that experience.
“I am so grateful to have had the opportunity to participate in the vaccine clinic and work with such wonderful people,” she said.
SSU’s School of Nursing offers multiple pathways for students to complete their degrees in the field, including an Associate Degree in Nursing and an LPN-RN Pathway, as well as a Bachelor of Science in Nursing and an RN-BSN Pathway . The degrees offer a variety of opportunities for those just beginning their nursing journey or those licensed nurses seeking high-quality educational opportunities to further their careers.
“I am so grateful that I chose Shawnee’s nursing program,” she said. “The professors care a lot about their students. They push us to succeed and be the best future nurses we can be.”
