Erica Perryman left a career as a business consultant to head back to school. After taking a part time job with the University of Oklahoma College of Nursing as a Research Assistant and taking prerequisites, Erica says she "…started to see my future in health care as a nurse…". For Erica, working closely with nursing professionals every day inspired her to join them by applying for the College of Nursing’s Accelerated Bachelor of Science in Nursing (ABSN) program. Erica says that the OU College of Nursing is “setting the standard for nursing education in the state.” Today, as an ABSN graduate, Erica is preparing for her boards and has accepted a position in a surgery unit at a local hospital.
"I am excited to see where my nursing career will take me, and am hopeful that the variety of nursing trajectories from which to choose will make for a fun and fulfilling career."
