Nursing student selected for prestigious St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital internship reflects on UND experience

Anna Christian has always been interested in pediatrics. The University of North Dakota nursing student from Moorhead, Minn., was chosen for a highly competitive internship at St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital in Memphis, Tenn., this summer, helping with nursing research projects. Christian also competed her own research project as part of the internship. Now back at UND, she is applying her knowledge to research and study for her UND nursing degree.

UND is “teaching us the skills and the knowledge we need to be the best nurses that we can be,” Christian said. “We are prepared to be professional nurses right after we graduate.”
