RN, 1+2+1 BS in Nursing
“I started gaining real-world experience during my second year in the Nursing Program through clinical rotations at Buffalo area hospitals. I was able to have one on one contact with patients, perform critical assessments, administer medications, and give direct patient care. I plan to continue my education at Daemen in their Nurse Practitioner Program and specialize in orthopedics.”
