Brandon, BSN ’21

My grandmother, Lola, was my hero. She was incredibly loving, always taking care of us and cooking amazing things. When she went into hospice, I was devastated. The hospice nurses took exceptional care of her just as they took care of us, her grieving family.

It was at that moment that I knew I wanted to be a nurse. For me, becoming a nurse was a way to honor her memory and life. So, my best friend and I decided to apply to Roseman’s BSN program. I graduated this past Spring and now I am a working full-time as a Cardiac Medical-Surgical Nurse at Mountain View Hospital. Roseman gave me the nursing skills I needed to be successful. And now I am caring for others, just as the hospice nurses cared for my grandmother and my family. I know my grandmother Esperanza is smiling down on me.
