As someone who has chosen a nursing career, you may at some point choose to  deepen your experience through graduate study.  At the Christine E. Lynn College of Nursing, our graduate students come from a wide array of backgrounds and experiences. Yet they share a dedication to this noble profession, and they continually seek to enhance their ability to impact the health & wellness of others.  I congratulate all of you on this commitment.
