  • Ji Youn Yoo

    I wanted to join the College of Nursing for several reasons. Firstly, it is a great school to teach at because it is well recognized for comprehensive educational programs, integrating education, innovative simulation practice, and interprofessional collaboration.

  • Vanessa Betancourt

    As a part of the nursing curriculum, students are required to spend time in an Academic Service-Learning environment. Betancourt was assigned to Positively Living, a nonprofit organization serving East Tennessee’s most vulnerable populations, including those who inject drugs.
