Meet Chazmire, Nursing Major

Meet Chazmire, Nursing Major

From a young age, I wanted to work in the medical field. After I had my daughter, I decided to become a labor and delivery nurse. My career goal is to obtain my masters in nursing so that I can become a nurse midwife. I selected Alverno College because I have friends and family members who attended, and they all boasted about the quality of the nursing program.

The help and resources that Alverno provides for students has had a significant impact on me. Alverno has helped me grow by pushing me to be more responsible and to always reflect on how I can become a better person.

On campus I am a member of the Black Student Nurse Association. My clinical internship and placement is at a nursing home. I'm learning how to communicate effectively and to work with others who may not have the same background as me.

Outside of class, I volunteer at Aurora West Allis Memorial Hospital at the reception desk. I help transport patients to their appointments, discharge patients and give directions for how to get around the hospital.

My scholarship allowed me to focus on my schoolwork and internship. It also helped me to realize that there are good people who would like to help others succeed. Receiving a scholarship gave me the idea to start my own scholarship after I graduate to help other students in financial need. I am forever grateful for the generous donation and will continue to follow my dreams so that I can impact others.
