Emily Schumacher graduated in 2010 and entered practice in an oncology, neurology, and neurosurgery unit at American Family Children’s Hospital. Three years later, she enrolled part-time in the Doctor of Nursing Practice program, which she will complete this spring. “I found what I was supposed to do. It was nursing,” she says. “It was a combination of all the things I love.”
