To help meet this need, Chamberlain College of Nursing is committed to educating the next generation of clinically proficient and compassionate nurses, both in Illinois and nationwide, to provide breast cancer patients with the treatment and support they require, and to aid doctors in their research to find a cure for this devastating disease.”From left, Yesha Patel, a BSN student; Celine Uhle, administrative coordinator; Julie Bauer, clinical coordinator; and Brianne Polony, a BSN student, prepare for the start of the race as members of Chamberlain’s team.
