In Her Own Words: Jeniece Regan

We’re looking at genome-wide association studies, when they look at your genome to figure out what variants you have there that are associated with a disease. My project looks at that in light of Alzheimer’s contexts to figure out what genetic variants might make people more prone to Alzheimer’s disease.

In Her Own Words: Jaime Calvin

If it weren't for sports, I am not sure I would have even gone to college. If it wasn't for the education I gained at Huntington and the professors I had that pushed me to be better, I would have never made it to grad school.

I am interested in…health care.

For those who are interested in health care, the right profession can be incredibly rewarding. By considering the curriculum you want to study, the type of care you want to offer, and the path you want to take to become a certified or licensed professional, you can narrow down your options to the major that will suit your interests, gifts, and goals the best.

Interested in nursing and missions?

Young adult Christians, regardless of their career path, often understand the importance of missions work, and many have the opportunity to serve through short-term missions trips across the world long before they reach college. Others hope that missions will be their full-time work after they graduate from college. There are many great opportunities for nurses, particularly, to serve in missions abroad with the skills they learned in the lab and at work.

Nursing and the Nativity

At a Christian nursing school like Huntington University, nursing students learn all the practical knowledge and skills to be successful nurses and develop their emotional health to provide care with a servant’s heart. In a field like maternal and child health, nurses have abundant opportunity to connect with those in need. They can share their faith or simply serve the Lord by loving and caring for their patients.

A Tip From the Psychology Department: Don’t Believe Everything You Read

Psychology is the scientific study of the human mind and its functions. At Huntington University, we like to push beyond given information and challenge our minds to think about other options. In doing this, we develop our minds to think critically. This brain function is used often in the Department of Psychology. Need an example that you can’t believe every headline you read?
