Lianna Partee '16, '19 Nursing

UML prepared Lianna Partee for a career that she’s passionate about. After completing her nursing degree here and working as a registered nurse for a year, she returned to earn a master’s degree in gerontological nursing.

At the outpatient Shapiro Clinic at Beth Israel Hospital, I truly fell in love with providing patient care with goals to promote health and wellness in the community while attempting to keep patients out of the hospital.
