Michelle James, BSN graduate, MSN student
Michelle James says that a big motivator in pursuing the BSN and MSN at American Sentinel was to arm herself with the skills and credentials to move beyond patient care. From 2012 to 2014, Michelle was the education coordinator for Kindred Hospital Nashville, coordinating and teaching continuing education courses for hospital employees.
“I love what I do, but I’ve run nurse floors for 20 years and I feel I have the experience to do other things,” she says. “You really need at least a BSN to have more mobility in your nursing career.”
In May 2014, the opportunity arose for a new nurse manager at Michelle’s hospital, and with her BSN completed—and her MSN underway—Michelle was an ideal candidate.
