The Healer’s Art
The Healer’s Art
April 2023 | Inspired by Emily, Registered Nurse
Emily is a registered nurse (RN) currently working as a clinical nurse in the University of Utah Hospital's Burn Trauma Intensive Care Unit. Fascinated in learning about the human body and first aid from a young age, Emily's experience in a college level anatomy and physiology class that she took in high school exposed her to a glimmer of all that one can learn in the medical field: she was hooked! Ever since, Emily has had a passion for learning, interweaving her passions into nursing school and her career. Emily earned her Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) from Brigham Young University and expressed interest in continuing to advance in the medical field, considering additional certifications or even a doctorate!
When asked what she would say to young girls to inspire them today to pursue a STEM degree program or future career, Emily said: "Find a career path that meets your interests and needs now, and that can grow with you in the future! I love what I do now, and I know that when I am ready to get more certification as a critical care nurse or go back to school to get my doctorate, this job experience is helping me prepare for my next steps. Nursing has so many different career paths too, so make sure to explore opportunities within your chosen field so you can find what connects with you the best. I fell into burn nursing for my first job, and now I can't imagine doing anything else!" 💗
Emily named her coordinating color "The Healer's Art" for a very personal reason: "My nursing school’s mission ‘to learn the Healer’s Art’ continues to guide my nursing practice. My personal faith is integral to the way I care for my patients physically and emotionally. For me, nursing is how I can most emulate Christ, as I serve, care for, and heal my patients, practicing ‘the Healer’s art.'"
The Healer's Art pairs well with Registered Nurse, also inspired by Emily.
