“I believe that my nursing practice was and still is a biblical calling. I am a teacher who has been given the great responsibility of ensuring that my students graduate feeling prepared to be compassionate and safe practicing nurses. For each life they touch, I feel that I have had some small part in that, knowing that we all are just instruments of God’s hands.”

—Jennifer Blanchard
