A nursing student who walks the walk

Nursing student Dan Lee

Dan L. is probably a lot like you. He is majoring in nursing at Case Western Reserve University because he wants to do his part to, “retain that human aspect in health care.”

That’s why this summer he jumped in to address the need for personal protective equipment (PPE), making and delivering face shields for hospitals in his New Jersey community. 

Dan publicized the project to garner startup funding and delivered shields to health care professionals.

Dan is a junior and plans to become a family nurse practitioner after earning his Bachelor of Science in Nursing from CWRU’s Frances Payne Bolton School of Nursing. 

“Oftentimes, I think that hospitals can be seen as cold and dreadful places where patients are often viewed as ‘problems to fix,’ he says. “I wanted to help retain that human aspect in health care so that patients can not only look to me as someone who will advocate for their health, but also as someone who will make sure their fears, concerns and issues are listened to and heard.”

As a future nurse, it’s your duty to care for patients’ overall well-being. At CWRU, you’ll be in company with nurses like Dan who go out of their way to go the extra mile.
