Making an International Impact on Health
“UE has provided the foundational requirements for me to succeed as a nurse. It also gave me the opportunity to see non-traditional career pathways available.”
Class of 2015
A Unique Education
Your college experience is a collection of destinations, and at UE you get to create a path that is uniquely yours. For Breianna Simpson, that experience has ranged from saving a simulated life on-campus in the Dunigan Nursing and Simulation Lab to completing a humanitarian project in the Dominican Republic for GO Ministries.
Education Paired with Experience
“UE has provided the foundational requirements for me to succeed as a nurse. It also gave me the opportunity to see non-traditional career pathways available to me by encouraging me to participate in different programs, such as ID 180 with Dr. Amy Hall, the course I was in that took me and my classmates to the Dominican Republic to develop a business plan for a new medical facility.” Breianna was the team leader for the pharmacy group, which determined number of medications, costs, and even designed the layout for the new facility.
In addition to gaining professional experience in nursing internships with local hospitals, Breianna has become involved in many activities outside of class. She is a member of National Society of Leadership and Success, SNAP, her residence hall council, the honors program, and a sorority. Somehow she also manages to find time to play intramural sports.
More than She Expected
“I started my college career with the intent on going to class, getting my degree, and leaving. The experiences I’ve had at UE have opened my mind and made me realize how much I could have missed with such a narrow focus.”
