    The LSNA hones my leadership skills and helps me grow personally and professionally. It also provides me with opportunities to engage with fellow nursing students as well as the local community.

        I am so grateful to be a board member for the Luther College Student Nurses Association this year, serving as the disaster relief chair! LSNA is a great opportunity for students to get involved on campus. As a junior student experiencing clinical at Mayo Clinic in Rochester this year, I am so lucky to still be a part of such a great program on campus all while having these great opportunities to learn! Outside of LSNA, I also participate in PALS and Dance Marathon on campus! In my free time, I love staying active, hiking, and cooking. I can't wait to see what we accomplish as a group this year and the impact we will have on the Luther community!

          I am most grateful for the relationships that the Luther Nursing Program has provided me with. I have many meaningful connections with my peers and professors. LSNA has been a key contributor to forming friendships, and I look forward to getting to know more of the people that make the Luther Nursing Program as wonderful as it is! On campus I have worked as a RA in Ylvisaker, on the grounds crew and as a lab assistant. When not in class, I enjoy being active outside (as much as the beautiful Iowa weather allows) and watching sports!

              My favorite part about the Luther nursing program is how interactive it is. There are so many opportunities to grow and experiences to learn from. The nursing faculty help to maximize our learning experiences and make the most out of our time in the program. There are so many resources in place to make being a nursing student a fun experience. With that being said, I am so excited to serve as the Public Relations Director! Outside of nursing, you can find me outside, at a coffee shop, or spending time with my family and puppy.

                LSNA has been a way for me to grow not only professionally, but has also allowed me to grow personally in my relationships with others, give me the confidence to expand in my skills, and empower me to explore possibilities beyond the classrooms after graduation. It has been so great to work with so many different people during my time in LSNA, answering questions, offering support, and building friendships. Outside of LSNA, I work part time at Kwik Trip, hoard plants (specifically haworthias), attempt cooking new and unique dishes I find online, and finding some time for myself at local coffee shops for a little pick-me-up.

                      I am so happy to be on the LSNA board this year! I love Luther's nursing program and all the hands-on opportunities it presents. As a sophomore, it is so exciting to start diving into the program and nursing-specific classes. LSNA has provided a great insight into different nursing possibilities for me and allows me to get a better idea of what the profession is really like. I hope to go into Pediatric or ER Nursing, but I'm interested to learn about other possibilities too. Outside of LSNA, I love singing in choir, going to Women's group (student-led bible study), and getting coffee with friends. I look forward to seeing all of us grow as individuals and an organization this year!
