Position title: Student Ambassador

Sonam Dorjee

Sonam Dorjee decided to attend the UW–Madison School of Nursing because she wanted to learn from the expert instructors, engage in an active learning environment, and gain hands-on experience. She also liked how the School of Nursing strives to improve diversity, equity, and inclusivity measures.

One of Dorjee’s favorite experiences was joining the Nursing: Diversity and Women’s Studies First-Year Interest Group, where she met some of her closest friends. Her favorite UW tradition is the Homecoming parade.

Her advice to those interested in pursuing a career in nursing? “Don’t feel pressured to have experiences only tailored to healthcare,” says Dorjee. “Having non-healthcare-related positions and experiences is so valuable and prepares you for nursing school and beyond!”
