The gratification of helping people is what drew West Coast University alumni, Florence Stohner into the world of healthcare.
“There’s something in healthcare and helping people, that once you accomplish that its not just a job done,” Stohner said, “It’s someone who feels better at the end of the day. They’re better and it’s because of you and you made a difference.”
The WCU-Los Angeles alumni started out as an LVN and sought out a higher scope of practice. Stepping onto campus, she had her own expectations of what she needed in her education.
To Stohner, the simulation center and clinical staff featured different instructors from different backgrounds to help guide and prepare her for the future.
Stohner celebrated her pinning ceremony in June and wishes the best of luck to all the future nurses at West Coast University.
