UT’s nursing program is challenging but offers great opportunities for aspiring nurses and pushes us to learn as much as we can. The nursing faculty have a wide variety of backgrounds and care deeply about their students. After I graduate, I would like to work in a pediatric intensive care unit and eventually become a nurse practitioner." — Katherine Marting ’16, nursing skills lab student worker, lecture/lab tutor for anatomy and physiology, vice president of Student Nurses Association
