Rachel Torry

Association of Graduate Nursing Students

Hi everyone!  My name is Rachel Torry (she/her), and I am a student in the College of Nursing in the Doctor of Nursing Practice program.  I will be dual certified in Pediatric Primary and Acute Care and will graduate in 2023.  I am excited to be serving as the GPSG representative in the Association of Graduate Nursing Students this year.  I was born and raised in Des Moines and earned my BA in Biology from Wartburg College (Waverly, IA) and BSN from the University of Tennessee (Knoxville, TN).  I currently work as a nurse in a Pediatric Emergency Department where I enjoy the fast-paced environment and continual learning opportunities.  When I’m not at work or in school, I like trying out new recipes, reading, and exploring trails and parks with my golden retriever.
