"I chose the PhD program at the University of Iowa because it is well known as a research intensive institution. The college was able to match me with faculty that have the same research interests as me. My first semester in the program has been a conducive environment for me to learn from and I'm fortunate to be here. I know I will achieve my professional goals of being a nurse researcher and I will be able to influence nursing practice in Kenya through research and education."
