Nov. 6—A senior at Shawnee State University, Julie Price (Hometown: Proctorville, Ohio) has enjoyed being able to gain clinical experience in her major. Pursuing a Bachelor of Science in Nursing, Price recently had the opportunity to give vaccines to her fellow students, friends, and professors at the on-campus Flu & COVID-19 Vaccine Clinics.
"I chose nursing because I wanted to make a positive impact on people," she said.
When first learning she would be able to give out vaccines at the clinic, Price was nervous but excited for the opportunity to have that experience.
"I am so incredibly grateful I had the opportunity to participate in the vaccine clinic and work with such great people," she said.
