I decided to apply for the ITEACH Fellowship because I really love working at Nebraska Medicine as a technician, and I figured there was no better way to get more involved with the organization. I am looking forward to meeting new people, experiencing different floors and being with the coworkers I’ve worked with for the past two years.

One of the main reasons I applied for the ITEACH Fellowship is job security. I currently work at Nebraska Medicine and to know that I already have a job there and haven’t even finished my second year of school is amazing. Another reason that I applied for the ITEACH Fellowship is the opportunity to work with different units. I look forward to working in the float pool and participating in patient care throughout the different specialties that the Medical Center has to offer.

I wanted to apply for the ITEACH Fellowship because of the opportunities that came with it. I like the idea of getting a head start on searching for jobs after I graduate and having guidance during this time from people within the program. I am looking forward to experiencing many different floors during the float pool, so I can decide where I would like to work in the future. I am also excited to shadow others from the hospital, so I can decide if graduate school is the right path for me.

I applied for the ITEACH Fellowship after another recipient informed me about the program. My nurse manager at Nebraska Medicine also provided me with information, and she told me about all of the amazing opportunities and benefits the fellowship provides. I am looking forward to gaining as much in-floor nursing experience as I can throughout my time with the program. I am excited for the chance to float between different floor units to broaden and explore my nursing practice.
