Michael Campbell, 2014 Nursing
Registered Nurse, St. Clair Hospital in Pittsburgh, Pa. – Intermediate Care Unit
Michael Campbell spends his 12-hour work shifts constantly moving and staying active. Working in the intermediate care unit at St. Clair Hospital in Pittsburgh Pa., Campbell is very busy dealing with multiple patients with varying degrees of illnesses.
As a registered nurse, he records patient medical histories and symptoms, provides patient care and interprets cardiac rhythms.
Securing a job just one month after graduation, Campbell earned his bachelor of science in nursing at Waynesburg University in May at 31 years old.
Although wearing the many hats of student, husband and father seemed challending at times, Campbell said Waynesburg’s Nursing Program prepared him to enter the workforce with confidence. He adds that the Program provided him with the foundation he needed to become a nurse.
“Waynesburg gave me the challenge I was looking for while providing me the skills and knowledge I needed to start a career as a nurse,” said Campbell. “I was able to have clinical at multiple hospitals, which allowed me to decide what hospital was the right fit for me once I graduated.”
