Current Information

The partnership with Rush and the GEM program provided many opportunities to network with other nurses and faculty. In the program, my mentors paved a way for me to network and meet other nurses which led me to my first job at Rush as an adolescent psychiatric nurse. During the GEM program I also had many opportunities to volunteer and take advantage of professional development and present at the American Public Health Association conference as a student.

Joi graduated from the Direct Entry Master’s (MSN) for Non-Nurses: Generalist Entry Master’s (GEM) Clinical Nurse Leader (CNL) program at Rush in 2016 and started the Doctor of Nursing Practice (DNP) Psychiatric-Mental Health (PMHNP) program in the Fall of 2018.
