What’s Next for Our Dragons?

July 14, 2014

Hundreds of College of Nursing and Health Professions students- both undergraduate and graduate- crossed the stage at the University’s 120th Commencement Exercises on June 13. As our graduates donned their caps and gowns and learned how to affix their hoods, we asked them to step aside to let us know what’s coming next for them in their lives. Grads: we handed you blank whiteboards and you covered them with your hopes, plans, and tons of personality! We received a wide variety of responses, from the entertaining to the quite serious, the humorous to the brutally honest.

Creative Arts Therapies graduate Ashley Slade will be spending more time with family. Barbara McHale, who graduated with her Master’s in Nursing, just received a promotion at work. A large number of our grads reported that they plan to start working on their DNPs, PhDs, Master’s degrees, and MBAs. A handful are on their way to Disney and others will travel internationally, on vacation or for service work. Health Services Administration graduate Debra Hoffman will be taking some Sunday afternoon naps. Fellow HSAD classmate Jeff Daniel heads excitedly into “Career & Marriage,” as his whiteboard shows. A number of our grads are on the hunt for their next great career opportunity. Some are getting married, having children, or even “ruling the world!”
