Since Dee's Angels was founded we knew that we wanted to give back to the world in the same way that Dee always had, and with all of the difference she made as a nurse we all agreed that the best way to uphold her legacy is to help others who wish to follow her same path.
Hello, my name is Laura Miles, and I am in my final semester at Gateway! I am extremely excited!
This would not have been possible without the help from scholarships. I am truly grateful for the Dee's Angels Nursing Scholarship and the donor who made it possible!
After I graduate in December, I plan to start my career at one of the local hospitals. I know words could never express how appreciative I am to be able to attend a school that helps students so much financially, a true blessing.
Thank you to each and everyone who made my dream of becoming an RN possible. I will be forever grateful.
Hello, I've attended Gateway for four semesters but only in the Allied Health program for the last two semesters.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, I wasn't able to participate in clinical's last semester, so I'm really excited to get this semester started. I can't wait to start practicing what I've learned in a hospital setting.
Besides taking a full class load, I work as a nanny to help finance my education; although, I've had to cut back my work hours extensively due to the time and energy required for the pre-nursing program. However, it's all paying off. I'm proud of the 3.0 GPA I've been able to maintain with my busy schedule.
I am so grateful for receiving Dee's Angels Nursing Scholarship. This scholarship helps alleviate some of the financial burden placed on me since I'm paying for college myself. This scholarship allows me to stay focused on my studies and time management skills so that i can excel in the nursing program.
My future goals are to graduate from Gateway and transfer to Northern Kentucky University. Eventually, I would like to work with babies, young children, or the labor delivery area at a local hospital.
I feel so blessed that I am a Nursing student at Gateway. It has always been a dream of mine to become a nurse. From the time I had to take care of grandmother for four years until she passed away. After that I knew I wanted to make a difference in the way nurses treat patients. I want to thank Dee's Angels for helping me make my dreams come true.
