Class Year: Graduate Student
Hometown: Lancaster, PA
Graduating from Millersville University in 2008 with a B.S. in Biology and a Minor in Biochemistry, Mallory Hull knew the quality of education that was available to students interested in the School of Science and Mathematics. Her familiarity with the university and desire to grow in her practice as a nurse led Hull to enroll in the Nursing RN-BSN program. Hull, employed as a nurse in the Lancaster Regional Medical Center’s Intensive Care Unit, credits the program for expanding her knowledge in the science of nursing theory and evidence based practice. She finds that she has been able to utilize what she has learned in the classroom and apply it at her job, an aspect which she finds especially rewarding.
As a full-time nurse, Hull believes that the flexibility of the program is one of its many strengths. In addition, she cites the nursing department’s outstanding faculty as integral to her learning experience. In particular, Hull is inspired by her professors’ passion for their work and willingness to work with students. Hull credits her current education at Millersville for allowing her to make the best decisions for her patients. Working the night shift, she is given a fair amount of autonomy but is confident that Millersville has provided her with the expertise needed to handle any given situation.
Hull values the well-rounded education she received while at Millersville, not just in nursing classes, but at the University as a whole. In recognition of her efforts, she was awarded the Sara. J. Sigafoos Memorial Award for Clinical Excellence in December of 2011. After finishing the BSN program, Hull plans to continue her education by pursuing a MS in Nursing. Her advice to current or prospective students is to stay passionate and intellectually challenge oneself.
