Pinning the nurses of tomorrow


my name’s kristin hennessy i’m a student
in the gap program on in the family nurse practitioner track and i’m on the
empty n p uh… in the d_n_c_ program as well it’s
an honor to receive the pen it’s a historic tradition and it’s exciting to
be a part of something that reaches so back far back into the history of the
nursing profession my mom is a nurse my sister is a nurse and many other people
in the class have family members who are also nurses and
so it’s exciting to be uh… at literally handed the honor the welcoming into the nursing
profession i finished all the nursing on our end level academic and clinical training i’m taking the n clark’s very soon um… and so i finish the nursing
portion and i’m using that nursing foundation to move on through the uh…
family nursing nurse practitioner track and optimally lp ed doctoral level nurse
practitioner forget class thirty two people in such a
diverse group of people that come from really different backgrounds we have people who are in retail management
uh… exercise physiology some people from the military uh… a dentist some people who are in
theater people come from all different perspectives and i come from uh… social work
perspective and specifically social justice are men when i was thinking about what i
wanted to do professionally i knew i wanted to come from a social justice
perspective in was a matter of choosing sort of what field i wanted to bring about social justice within on the nursing made sense to me because
i’m interested medicine uh… and public health kind of growing communities strengthening communities
through health and wellness i applied to quite a few schools and the
reason that i chose you masses because of u masses focus on community-based
care and as a as ed university of massachusetts school
it’s kind of fundamentally part of the community of massachusetts common that appealed to me as opposed to
the other private schools
