Keran Raju is earning a master’s degree while working as a nurse at a Bay Area hospital.

What led you to apply for the Nursing Science and Health-Care Leadership graduate program?
I applied for graduate school at the Betty Irene Moore School of Nursing to make a difference in the way health care is delivered to our community.

What excites you the most about the Betty Irene Moore School of Nursing?
I am excited that the Betty Irene Moore School of Nursing sees nurses as future health-care leaders.  I look forward to being able to obtain the skills necessary to perfect my skills as one of those leaders.  Beyond that, I am honored to have met the faculty and to be mentored by so many scholars.

What do you hope to do upon completing the program?
I want to help the future nursing generation recognize that nursing is a leadership role that requires compassion, dedication and the desire to improve health-care disparities and look beyond the basic bedside care. I am hoping that this journey back to school will help me identify and voice my strengths in improving health-care disparities.
