My career goal is to become a Nurse Practitioner.

What does it take to be academically successful at Vanderbilt?

To be academically successful at Vanderbilt, you have to be willing to put extra time into your studies. Also, being organized goes a long way.

How do you manage your demanding schedule?

Being organized and keeping a list of all the things that need to be completed for the week will really help relieve some stress that you may be feeling from your busy schedule.

What is your ritual before taking a test?

My ritual for taking a test starts about a week before I actually have to take the test. I study certain sections every day until the test so I am not cramming the last night.
