Four years ago, Travis Day felt trapped. He’d started pre-med training as an undergrad, then switched to international business management. He found his career importing and exporting wine unfulfilling. But he knew his degree didn’t fit the requirements of most graduate medical programs.
He began looking for a reputable program that would accept graduate students without a medical background. What he got from Seattle University’s Advanced Practice Nursing Immersion education was a renowned program that didn’t just accept him—it was designed specifically for career changers like him.
And it sacrificed nothing in quality of instruction and academic expectations. Classes included full-time study, rigorous preparation for nursing exams and realistic simulation of emergency scenarios in SU’s state-of-the-art, 20,000 square foot Clinical Performance Lab. But he was most impressed with the school’s emphasis on compassion and social justice—all students perform immersive internships in underserved communities. Travis found his own experience at the Fort Peck Assiniboine and Sioux Reservation one of the most rewarding and validating of his career.
Seattle University takes its commitment to nurturing the community seriously—as a university we contribute more than 200,000 hours of service each year. And that commitment to provide what’s needed also extends to its students.
