Student Spotlight: Imoni Anderson
BSN student Imoni Anderson knew as early as five years old that she wanted to work in the medical field. She discovered the College of Nursing after hearing about the school’s outstanding reputation. “Bon Secours Memorial College of Nursing lived up to every expectation,” Anderson said. She mentioned that the admission process was very competitive, but it was well worth it as she reflects upon her journey.
Anderson has a love of helping others and knew in her heart that she was called to be a nurse. “Serving others gives me a deep sense of gratitude. It is truly a blessing to save lives,” she said. Anderson lives through selfless service by going above and beyond to help others and expecting nothing in return. “Having a true passion for giving is what truly makes it selfless service.”
Eager to make her nursing journey more than just classes and clinicals, Anderson has taken advantage of numerous opportunities at the College to get involved, contribute and make an impact. She has helped her fellow classmates be successful as a peer tutor (known as Peer Academic Support Services) and has proudly served in the Student Government Organization (SGO) as the diversity and inclusion chair as well as vice president. She was honored to receive a Bon Secours Foundation scholarship last year and was selected to participate in the Global Outreach Spring Break service trip to Miami.
Anderson will graduate in 2024 and plans to work at Bon Secours on a critical care unit. In addition, she has plans to go back to school soon to further her education.
