Humans of Penn Nursing: Sarah Shin, Nu’18, GNu’19

“As an intensive care nurse, I spend many shifts face-to-face with suffering, pain, and death. My critically ill patients fight to live, day in and day out. With all the procedures, imaging, monitors, lights, beeping, and poking, patients have asked me if it is easier to die than to suffer.

Charlotte Cecarelli, Nu’22

“One of the aspects of Penn that I am most grateful for is the opportunity to explore nursing through many different experiences. These experiences I have had are what sparked my interest in neonatal nursing beginning in my freshman year. My developed passion has pushed me past boundaries of exploration and has inspired me to become the best nurse possible.
