She will graduate in December from University of Maine at Fort Kent, Accelerated BSN, Summa Cum Laude. she has a passion for ER nursing and hopes to work as an ER nurse after graduation.
Of the Elaine Hill Memorial Scholarship Nettie-Kate says, “Since I had a previous degree from Bowdoin College, I was limited in financial aid. In addition to receiving some federal aid, I had to take two private loans to help afford nursing school. Without the Elaine Hill Scholarship, it would have been very difficult for me to finish my nursing program.”
