Tell us about yourself:

I am an avid reader that loves to travel, learn about cultures and work as a care provider. Without realizing it, I actually participated in many organizations that were public health related including Purdue’s NAMI on Campus (the national alliance on mental illness). Not until last year, when I decided to apply to the MPH program, did I realize that my true passion was for public health all along!

Your education:

I am currently a senior BSN student (Bachelor’s of science in nursing) at Purdue University.

Your vision:

I chose to pursue an MPH because I wanted to expand my scope of practice as a healthcare professional while learning the necessary skills and tools to be a public health practitioner. I will take my nursing board exam this summer and hopefully become a registered nurse that has a strong public health scope and skill set. I hope to eventually work for the CDC, NIH, NIMH, NCCDPHP or a non-profit organization focused on improving the health and wellbeing of at-risk populations.

Why the acclerated MPH option at Purdue:

I am currently finishing my last year in nursing school at Purdue and naturally I thought of staying one additional year for an MPH. It fits well with my career goals of being a public health practitioner with the skill sets of a registered nurse.

Your goals on the first year of the program:

I am looking forward to working with a research team and continuing to learn about the many facets of public health!
