“Growing up on Maui truly made me appreciate the ability of small, tight knit communities to accomplish amazing things! Because of my mom’s position at a local non-profit, I was constantly exposed to projects and events that helped vulnerable populations achieve success, so I always knew helping people would be a part of my career. Coming to Oahu for nursing school has allowed me to experience new things while remaining in Hawaii! I think that the best part of my experience at UH Manoa Nursing has been the fact that from the beginning it has been extremely hands on, and throughout the semesters you get to immerse yourself in some of the main nursing specialties so that you can find out what you like best!” – Carissa Ratte, Undergraduate Nursing, Class of 2018
