Caitlin’s Message of Thanks
I am writing to thank you for making a gift that funded my scholarship. This scholarship will be a huge help as I transition into professional practice after nursing school. It will ease the financial stress that is inherent to times of change, and will enable me to focus more on studying for the NCLEX examination this summer. I hope to eventually financially support students in their pursuit of nursing degrees. This scholarship brings me one step closer to achieving that goal.
Caitlin’s Inspiration and Proudest Accomplishment
My clinical preceptor for my Obstetrics rotation at Huntington Hospital is an inspiration to me, professionally. She has an obvious commitment to excellence as a nurse, educator, and preceptor. Her ability to advocate for her patients and her coworkers is admirable, and she has an high level of personal integrity and commitment to the nursing Code of Ethics. I plan to emulate these qualities in practice as a nurse, and am thankful to have had her as an example.
