Sanquinette is currently in graduate school to obtain a master’s degree in nursing and plans to eventually obtain her doctorate, become a nursing professor at Anderson University, practice medicine in the community, and travel abroad on medical mission trips.
She considers the faculty in AU’s Department of Nursing “the most compassionate, hard-working, and proficient team, unlike any I have ever had the privilege to be a part of.”
She believes AU’s students are exceptional. “I am blessed to be a part of the process of educating and seeing the actual progression of students becoming great nurses. Nursing is a great career with so many opportunities for advancement and choices.”
