Danielle Weber, '16
This post was first published on April 4, 2016.
Danielle Weber is a senior nursing student who will graduate this May with her Bachelor of Science in Nursing. The Uhrichsville, Ohio native was familiar with Muskingum because her mom was a Muskie. However, the nursing program and the campus atmosphere made the decision to become a Muskie herself easy.
In addition to managing a rigorous nursing curriculum, clinical experience in nearby hospitals, and work both on- and off-campus, Danielle has been an active member of the student body, working as a Resident Assistant, serving as Recruitment Chair for her sorority, F.A.D., and currently completing her term as President of the Nursing Student Organization. She is also a member of several academic honoraries.
On campus, Danielle has worked as a Library Circulation Assistant and a tutor in the Success Center. Off campus, she has worked as a Physician’s Scribe in the Emergency Department at Southeastern Ohio Medical Center in Cambridge for two years.
Danielle chose to pursue nursing studies because “I have always had a passion for the medical field, but wanted to pursue a career that also allowed time for family. Nursing was the perfect balance for me to be able to take care of and help others, while still being able to spend time with my loved ones.”
All of Danielle’s hard work has already paid off – she recently accepted a position as a Registered Nurse at Nationwide Children’s Hospital in the Cardio-Thoracic Intensive Care Unit.
Thanks to her experiences as a Muskie, Danielle will be well-prepared. She says, “Muskingum has pushed me to grow as an individual, developing the crucial leadership, communication, and networking skills necessary to be a successful professional.”
