Michelle Yun, a graduate of the Rutgers University–Camden Wound Ostomy Continence Nursing Education Program, has received a scholarship from the Northeast Region Wound Ostomy and Continence Nurses Society.
A wound care nurse at Robert Wood Johnson-Somerset and at the Jersey City Medical Center, Yun plans to use the $1,000 scholarship to further her education and eventually pursue a doctor of nursing practice degree.
The Jersey City resident completed the Rutgers School of Nursing–Camden Wound Ostomy Continence Nursing Education Program in the summer.
“I was able to fit in the online courses after work with ease,” says Yun. “I had the freedom to review any conferences, power points, and group discussions from the comfort of my own home.”
Currently, Jersey City does not have a wound care center, but Yun hopes to one day manage a center in the city to serve residents who need care.
“I envision being in service of the community where continuity of care of chronic wounds will be well managed with expert and compassionate care,” says Yun.
She earned a bachelor of science in nursing degree at Rutgers University–New Brunswick in 2013.
