Clare Foley.jpgStudent Spotlight

Here at the Graduate School of Nursing, our students are dedicated, practice-focused and research-focused nurses and leaders. They take on their education with pride and make the GSN what it is today. As a token of appreciation for our students, we have started a student spotlight! Once a month, we will choose a GSN student to showcase why they are so special to the GSN. This month, we interviewed Clare Foley. Clare is a RN in our Graduate Entry Pathway in the DNP program. The following are questions we asked Clare about herself and how the GSN has affected her as a student:

Q: What program are you in and why did you pick it?
A: I am in the Family GEP-DNP program and I will graduate in 2021. 

Q: Where do you work currently?
A: I work in general surgery (Med/Surg) at Saint Vincent Hospital. 

Q: What are your hobbies outside of school?
A: I love running in races, baking, traveling, drinking craft beer, and spending time with my friends and family.

Q: What is the most helpful advice you received?
A: To stop worrying and take a breath, from Dr. Fischer.

Q: What do you love the most about the GSN?
A: The faculty--they live and breathe for this. They sacrifice so much for us students.

Q: Who has influenced you the most?
A: Janet Hale, Beth Keating, Mary Fischer, and Dean Vitello have been really integral to my success at GSN. They have always taken time to listen.
