“The Carthage 护理 faculty taught me the importance of believing in my ability to impact the lives of others — not only physically, 但精神上.”

凯尔·威廉姆森, ’24


“I chose Carthage because I received the opportunity to play 足球 and earn my degree at a reputable school. Carthage has a great campus alongside 密西根湖 and in between Chicago and Milwaukee. I knew that committing here meant I could balance playing the sport I love and pursuing my degree.”


“All of my professors have worked in a range of different fields. They share and connect their personal experiences with our curriculum, which gives us students a unique perspective on the 护理 practice. I apply their advice and knowledge in the clinical setting with actual patients every week.”


“My favorite class at Carthage so far has been Microbiology. 在这个课堂上, I researched microscopic bacteriophage, which are viruses that kill and selectively target bacteria. Each person in the class had to collect a sample of dirt, mud, or water. 有了这个样本, we followed a specific semester-long protocol to extract the phage and then replicate it. We then went to a special lab in the 科学中心 to observe the phage under a car-sized electron microscope made in Germany. We could then capture a picture that I still have now. I will never forget that experience.”


“The toughest class I took was Anatomy and Physiology during my sophomore year. It was my first class that challenged me and crafted me to be a better student. The class was also partnered with a lab that was just as challenging. I was tested on material from lectures and applied my knowledge to a lab with replicas of different structures in the body. I still use what I learned in this course to this day and apply it in my field.”

Golden opportunities

“I traveled to Barcelona, Spain with the 足球 team and spent 10 days learning about the history, 地理位置, and culture of Spain. We also played an American 足球 game against a Barcelona team. We got the opportunity to meet the players after the game, exchange gifts from our country, and meet some of the players’ families.”

Internships or campus employment

“I plan to follow up on an internship at Froedert South Hospital in 出赛 for an opportunity to shadow nurses and carry out different 护理 cares for patients. This internship program sets up 护理 students to stand out and gain more knowledge in the profession. Once completed, the program will align me with job opportunities after I graduate.”


“After I achieve my Bachelor of Science in 护理, I plan to work on a med-surge or ER floor in the hospital. I eventually want to become a travel nurse to meet new people, explore the states, and work with new teams of nurses.”

Favorite spot on campus

“My favorite spot on campus is behind 橡树 by the 密西根湖 shore. I often attach a hammock on some trees there when I want to relax and study. I also enjoy going to the top floor of to get a bird’s-eye view of Carthage.”


“My favorite memories include participating in 首页coming every year, going to downtown 出赛 on the weekends, and meeting new people in classes or dorms.”

What would your 8-year-old self think of you now?

“My young self wouldn’t have thought of becoming a nurse. I committed my career to be a nurse after quarantine and my knee injuries. I wanted to have a positive impact on the world, and with 护理, I found that.”
