Heather Crowe got her BSN from the University of Alabama, Tuscaloosa in 2008 and went on to work as a Cardiovascular ICU nurse for two years. She will use her NEF scholarship monies to pursue her Master’s degree with a concentration in Nurse Anesthesia at Northeastern University in Boston. She hopes that, as a nurse anesthetist she will be able to join medical teams visiting and working in areas in Africa and South America. Eventually she would like to pursue a career as a clinical instructor for nursing students.
