Eye-opening research

Rosetta Norman never thought she would end up with a passion for research or taking care of adults. The second-semester BSN student plans to be a NICU nurse once she graduates, but joining a faculty member’s research team has opened her eyes to more career possibilities and might just change her mind about the age of her patients.

That trend, coupled with the personal experiences of their colleagues, convinced members of the UAB School of Nursing’s Student Nurses Association to take a proactive role in raising awareness of this growing national issue.
