We Sea Change!

Lydia Tucker, NICU nurse at Sacred Heart

I wanted to send along a message of gratefulness and pride for all that you do on a daily basis to develop and teach the students who come through UWF. As the fall semester has begun, I get to interact with your students in their clinicals on a weekly basis as they come through the NICU. The experience of having students in our unit is eye-opening at times and definitely reflects on the quality and content of their time outside the hospital environment. Not only have the UWF nursing groups showed consistent professionalism and commitment to learning, I have also had the opportunities to hear some of the great things they are able to be a part of and experience during their time in the program. It has been so fun to reminisce and share some of our common experiences as students and reflect on how things are constantly improving both with my perspective as a recent alumnus and a few of our other nurses who came from the classes before mine.

I know that I would not be where I am today without God and the guidance, support, and training I received during my time at UWF with such wonderful Nurses and teachers as you all. I am immensely thankful for the standards that you set and uphold to develop Nurses who are uniquely qualified and stand out in the community. Where I am blessed to be today is due to not only my hard work and dedication but to the experiences and knowledge I gained in your classes and clinicals, and the opportunity you provided me to preceptor in the NICU. I will be forever grateful. Miss you all!
