Video: Online Nursing Student Honored for Service

Last month, during National Nurses Week, we introduced you to online MSN-Leadership and Management degree student Gladys Adjei-Poku, a Ghanaian-born nursing manager at the University of Utah Hospital who helps organize a yearly humanitarian medical trip back to Ghana.

Gladys was honored by the University of Utah College of Nursing on May 8 at the Honors for Nursing celebration. Gladys’ journey to a successful nursing career is not the standard story. "Just this morning, my teenage son couldn’t decide what pair of shoes to wear. When I was 15 I didn’t even own shoes," WGU Nursing course mentor Brenda Luther recalls Gladys telling her.

The organizers created the following video about Gladys, her journey, her volunteer work, and the love she brings to her education and her nursing:
