Amanda Plathe ’21

Nurse leader

Amanda loves seeing patients in all walks of life and supporting nurses in their endeavors. As a nurse leader, it's important to her to be a part of positive change.

Obtaining my BSN from Northwestern helps me to better achieve my goals of being an effective nurse leader. 

What did you value about Northwestern's RN to BSN program?

The flexibility and individual time each instructor took with students was amazing. My instructors knew me by name even though I was an online student! The program's Christian roots are refreshing. The mission helps to guide nurses in caring for patients holistically.

Don't wait! No matter your level of busyness, you can complete this program successfully. I managed a busy family practice clinic during a pandemic, have a young family, and completed the program with a high GPA! You can do it!
