I am just beginning my Masters in Nursing program this fall semester. I currently have a BSN and have practiced as a registered nurse for the last 14 years. I decided to pursue my Masters in Nursing with an Acute Care Nurse Practitioner track. I am wanting to take my career in a different direction than I have been for the last 14 years. Becoming an Acute Care Nurse Practitioner will allow me to practice hospital base medicine which is really where my passion lies. I am excited for the opportunities that this scholarship from AAAE has afforded me in pursuing my further education. Thank you again AAAE!
