“I’m thrilled to join the Fontbonne family and be part of this new nursing program. I am a native of St. Louis, so building a program in my community is an honor. In addition, Fontbonne’s commitment to excellence, integrity, diversity, and service aligns well with my own personal and professional values.
One of the current challenges for the nursing profession is the need for a more diverse workforce. The growing diversity in the U.S. demands a need to provide high-quality, culturally competent care to meet the needs of our diverse population. The nursing program at Fontbonne hopes to attract students from underrepresented groups in nursing – specifically men and individuals from African American, Hispanic, Asian, American Indian, and Alaskan native backgrounds. I am confident that our values-based curriculum, expert instruction, and small class sizes will give students from all backgrounds the tools they need to succeed.”
