Congratulations to Brittney Brown who was featured in Cleveland Magazine's "Faces of Nursing" in June 2011.

BrittneyBrittney Brown

This 22-year-old Cleveland native has what it takes to work at her first choice of employers, Rainbow Babies and Children's Hospital--she absolutely loves children. As a nursing student in Case Western Reserve University's work/study program, she helped kindergarteners at Mary McCloud Bethune Elementary School improve their math and reading skills. On Saturdays, she tutored students of all ages in a variety of subjects at Church of the Covenant.

"Kids always flock to me," she says. "I work well with them."

Brown thought she'd become a doctor when she enrolled in a medical-assistant program at Cleveland schools' Hough Career Center. Practical experiences working with veterans at the VA Medical Center, however, changed her mind. "I just knew that I wanted to work with the patients," she remembers. "The doctors weren't there the whole day--they came around for rounds. But the nurses were always there." She attended CWRU on a $19,600-a-year Frances Payne Bolton Scholarship. Now that she has her bachelor's degree in nursing, she plans to get her master's degree in child and adolescent psychiatry so she can become a nurse practitioner.
