Muneit O’Brien, Vice President

I am a 4th semester nursing student and have been involved with NGH since my 3rd. I enjoy being a part of the college community for the opportunities to engage in community service while influencing others within the college community. Nursing is my second major, after studying Civil Engineering, where I found my fervency in working with people. I plan to work in Critical Care upon graduation and later pursue a DNP. Being of Ethiopian descent, I've been exposed to the wreckage caused by war, poverty, hunger, and a lack of medical resources; hence my interest in NGH. After completing my BSN, I plan to return to Ethiopia to help provide the community with a better quality of health. For now, I'm very excited to give this last semester my best, especially with NGH!
