 Drawn to healthcare as a child, Athalia James, B.S.N. '22, pursued that passion all the way to a career in nursing. Kent State’s clinical programs helped her home in on an area of specialty and decide where she wanted to work. 

“Kent State gave us so much knowledge when it comes to the nursing field, but most importantly they teach the art of nursing,” James told Kent State Today.

Along the way she discovered that the university’s positive reputation put her in a great position as well – in high demand with prospective employers as a career-ready nursing graduate. Today, thanks to her undergraduate experiences at Kent State, she’s helping newborns and mothers as a nurse at Summa Heath System.
