Brittney Brown, a senior in UofL’s School of Nursing, believes she’s ready for what life will throw at her after graduation. Specifically, she plans on a career as a labor and delivery nurse at University Hospital. 

Since high school, Brown has been networking and connecting with other nursing students, and has taken advantage of a number of leadership opportunities at UofL. 

Brown has been a member (and, this year president) of the Black Student Nurses Association, SGA’s Student Council, the undergraduate research scholar program and more. 

“I’ve learned how to be able to delegate, how to prioritize, how to deal with tough situations and adversity here. I think it’s going to build me to be a good nurse and a good person in general,” she said.
