Alumni Profile: Stephanie Gibbs, '16, RN-BSN

Stephanie Gibbs, currently residing at Picatinny Arsenal, N.J., with her military husband and two daughters, recently completed the accelerated RN-BSN program at CSE.

"Moving around the country and living in different regions has been beneficial in that I have developed cultural competency and empathy for what others experience," she says. "Coming to CSE not only increased my nursing skills and knowledge, but also my confidence. These experiences have made me a better nurse."
