LILAC Alumna in Residence: Marissa Patterson, Family Nurse Practitioner

On Friday December 2, LILAC invited Marissa Patterson (’08 Biology & Anthropology Major) back to campus to talk about her path after Bryn Mawr and her job as an FNP at Family Practice and Counseling Network. I attended both the Wyndham lunch and a one-on-one informational interview with Marissa. This opportunity to learn more about the nursing career from an alum’s experience was special to me because I hope to pursue nursing after Bryn Mawr. Marissa had also commented on one of my Banter Blog posts, and I referred her to LILAC head Katie Krimmel to arrange for Marissa to be invited to campus. Wyndham-Alumnae-House-Wedding-Bryn-Mawr-PA-15_main.1429033529 Continue reading

First Day of Class at The University of Pennsylvania


Penn Station at 7am

Yesterday was the first day of my NURS 065 Fundamentals of Nutrition Class. I am taking this class because it is a prerequisite course for accelerated nursing programs I would like to apply to after Bryn Mawr. The class is also not offered in the Tri-Co, so I am taking it at the University of Pennsylvania.
