Suzanne Beshore is earning her master’s degree and is nurse in a children’s surgery center at a Sacramento hospital.
What led you to apply for the Nursing Science and Health-Care Leadership graduate program?
After 26 years as an associate degree nurse, I entered a nurse program to get my bachelor’s degree. My success with that program gave me the courage to dream of earning a master’s degree. The development of the Betty Irene Moore School of Nursing and the generosity of its financial support gave me the opportunity to pursue my dream.
What excites you the most about the Betty Irene Moore School of Nursing?
The passion and the positive energy of the people involved in the school and the possibilities of what we can accomplish with our efforts.
What do you hope to do upon completing the program?
I am especially interested in poverty and politics. I have experienced what it is like to make a difference in the hospital setting. After completing this program, I want to make a difference at the local and national level. This is my chance to strengthen my voice and advocate for health care for all.
