Peer Resource Network

Peer Resource Network (PRN) of Linfield University-Good Samaritan School of Nursing connects a community of past, present, and future nursing students in an effort to instill confidence and ease transitions by providing support, guidance, and inspiration while fostering the core values of nursing.

The Peer Resource Network (PRN) is a mentoring network that helps students better identify with the culture of nursing school including communicating with faculty, student involvement opportunities, and campus resources in order to have a successful first semester.

Teresa

Hi my name is Teresa, I’m a 4th semester student from Portland. I did my prereqs in Mac before coming to the nursing campus. I am interested in neuro, cardio, & hospice care. Some of my favorite things to do are watching reality TV, stargazing at the beach, & trying new foods with friends. I’m very excited to get to share what I’ve learned, to help, & support everyone as y’all start your journey through nursing school and beyond! You can contact Teresa at tnguyen7@linfield.edu

 

Angela

Angela

Hi there! My name is Angela and I am an incoming third semester nursing student this fall. I am a first generation Latina from SE Portland and I love to hang out with friends and family most. Although I am nearing the end of my time at Linfield, I don’t fully know what type of nurse I want to be! You will see that it often fluctuates based on experience and likings. However, I am interested in pediatric and cardiovascular nursing. I am excited to get to know you all and see how I can be a support to you. Don’t be afraid to say hi :) You can contact Angela at acano-hernandez@linfield.edu

 

EmmaLee

EmmaLee

Hi! My name is EmmaLee Haburn and I am a second-semester student. I am originally from Salem, OR and am living in Gresham with my best friend, who also lived with me at the McMinnville campus for my pre-reqs. Some fun facts about me: I just spent the month of July in Europe (which the photo of me is from Greece!). I love being with my nieces and nephews whenever I can. I am an extremely hard worker and sometimes I overestimate how much time I have to do things and have to take a step back and reevaluate. Something you’ll learn in nursing school is that you can have fun and give your mind that much needed break at least once every week without failing any thing. Your mind and body need to have fun and not feel guilty for it because we are all working extremely hard to become amazing nurses. Just work on time management and you’ll be amazing!! I am excited for this upcoming year with you all and I am here for all of you no matter the time of day!  You can contact EmmaLee at ehaburn@linfield.edu
