In celebration of Nurses Week 2020, VCU School of Nursing is sharing each day why students chose to become part of the most trusted profession on earth.

“I want to be a nurse to give a voice to my patients during their times of need. Being sick and needing medical help can be overwhelming and terrifying. I know this from personal experiences. And I want to bring my future patients peace, comfort and the reassurance that I am fighting for them. They are not alone.”

Lyndsey Highlander, a native of New Kent, Virginia, is a student in the accelerated B.S. class of 2020 (December).
