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.
