Ameritech Nursing Graduate Takes Flight

Having watched both her mother and grandmother pursue successful nursing careers, it was no surprise that Jennifer Dunford-Shealy (Class of 2013) chose to follow in their footsteps by pursuing her Associate’s of Science in Nursing degree at Ameritech.

However, unlike the generations of women before her, Jennifer has carved out her own unique career path—putting her Ameritech nursing training into practice at 30,000 feet as an airmed nurse. For her, a day on the job means flying into and out of remote locations in airplanes and helicopters to move or recover isolated patients. According to Jennifer: “It’s fascinating! And humbling. Every single day.”

Jennifer credits her success to the quality of the instructors and nursing education that she received at Ameritech, noting that: “The instructors are all really good! There was one in particular who was very tough, but she was great. The quality of the education on a fast-track program was much higher than what I found in other, similar programs.”

Find out how Ameritech’s higher quality nursing education empowered Jennifer to take her RN career to remarkable, new heights.

Ameritech gave me a solid foundation for my nursing career. The staff were great. They were friendly, personable, and cared about our success as students. I appreciated the smaller class sizes that were conducive to focusing on our individual needs. I felt well prepared for the NCLEX and had no troubles passing it on the first attempt.
