Julie Barker, an honors student who is graduating with her Bachelor of Science in Nursing in May 2016, has been awarded the University of Iowa’s prestigious Hancher Scholarship.
Lieutenant Cody Gremore advises future nursing students that it's never too early to start planning for your career.
“Try to figure out what you can do while you’re an undergraduate student to give yourself the best chance of success after you graduate,” he says. “Accomplishing a few objectives, big or small, while you’re a student can pay off largely later on in life.”
