Completing my degree at BYU made my career. I learned at BYU what a nurse practitioner really was and the kind of nurse practitioner I wanted to be. The faculty were worth emulating. Twelve years later I understand and appreciate that even more. While there were many experiences, one is very vivid. I remember well coming to class on Tuesday, September 12, 2001. The events of the day prior weighed heavily on the nation and BYU was no exception. Before we started the lecture, our professor, Sandra Lookinland, had us join hands and she prayed, for the nation, for those who were hurting so badly and for us. And then she went on to give one of her stellar lectures. She taught me a great lesson on grace, empathy, hope, determination and advanced pathophysiology that day. I am very grateful for her and all of the faculty that taught me similar lessons through their examples and lectures.
