Lauren Bines ’22 was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes at just 9. A few years laters, her grandfather lost his battle with cancer. She recalls, “What solidified my passion for nursing was caring for my Pop Pop for the last year of his life. I wanted to provide the same level of care to others struggling from illnesses or injuries.” After graduating from Monmouth University with a Bachelor of Science in Nursing, Lauren hopes to work in critical care, and someday, be certified as a nurse anesthetist.
