College of Nursing graduate continuing path of service

Military, EMT training led to place of patient-centered care
August 9, 2019

Hannah Muszynski was attracted to Texas A&M University for its commitment to veterans and the spirit of Aggie traditions. After graduating from Faith Christian High School, she enlisted and served in the United States Navy as an electrician’s mate in the nuclear program. When she returned home, she decided to extend her commitment to selfless service and the care of people by enrolling in an emergency medical technician (EMT) program at Baker College, where she excelled in the medical field. This sparked Muszynski’s interest in advancing her education to positively impact others by expanding her knowledge base to provide patient-centered care.

Muszynski applied and was admitted to Texas A&M College of Nursing. She began her journey to become an Aggie nurse in fall 2017. On Aug. 9, 2019, she met her goal, receiving the treasured nursing pin and earning a Bachelor of Science in nursing from Texas A&M.

“I look forward to taking what I learned in the nursing program here to further serve my community,” Muszynski said. She will now take the next step—passing the NCLEX exam—to become a registered nurse in the state of Texas, serving the Bryan-College Station community. Hannah is one of 59 college of nursing graduates (13 completing a master’s degree program and 46 completing a bachelor’s degree program) this August.
