Terry is a graduate of Boston Latin Academy who is in her final year of Simmons College where she is earning a Bachelor’s of Science degree as a Registered Nurse. Terry decided to take time away from Simmons after experiencing a setback with one required course. While other students may have let that turn into a major roadblock, Terry wisely used the time to work full-time as a nurse’s assistant at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center. The decision turned out to be crucial because in the process, she equipped herself with the necessary skills and knowledge to thrive in her upcoming psychiatric nursing course. Terry will soon be entering the workforce as one of the next great ER nurses.
