Amber Kuhn is originally from Grand Forks, N.D. and currently resides in Fargo. She finished the Bachelor of Science in Nursing degree program at Mayville State in August of 2020 and is now enrolled in MSU’s Master of Science in Nursing degree program. She plans to become a nurse educator and teach nursing students at the college level somewhere in North Dakota.
When asked what she loves about Mayville State, Amber responded, "There are so many things I love about Mayville! The professors have been so helpful and supportive, and I appreciate each of them. I also like the structure of the five-week block classes in the nursing program, which has made the degree attainable while working full-time."
A number of reasons led Amber to choose Mayville State as the institution where she would further her education. "My first nursing job was at Essentia Health, where I met the dean of the Mayville nursing program, Dr. Tami Such, who first told me about the program," she said. After hearing about Mayville, I did a lot of research on BSN programs and found that the BSN program was one of the most affordable and it would require less time to complete, which worked perfectly for me and my family. I loved the BSN program so much, when Mayville offered the MSN program, I knew it was right for me!"
Amber says the Mayville State nursing program will prepare her to teach nursing students to become successful nurses. "This program has helped me become a well-rounded nurse and has prepared me to understand various technologies and teaching styles to better serve many different students," she added.
