Since 1897, St. Elizabeth School of Nursing has produced thousands of graduates, each with their own unique story to tell. In an effort to share those stories, we have created an "ALumni Spotlight"
Not only do we wish to celebrate the accomplishments of alumni, but it is our hope these short stories will inspire others - be it prospective and current students, staff and alumni. Ultimately, our goal is to strengthen the sense of community among those connected to our school.
A passion for helping others is what often attracts people to a job in healthcare. Kyra Betts, MSN, CNM, planned to be a doctor until an experience as a patient herself made her realize how much more of a one-on-one relationship nurses have with patients. A true nurse at heart, she wanted to make a difference in the lives of patients not just medically but also personally. That is why she decided to switch up her plans and become a nursing student after graduating college—even though she’d spent most of her undergraduate career focused on pre-med courses and getting into medical school.
