– Autumn C.
I was a NHSC scholar and had my masters level nursing (specialization in midwifery) paid for by the NHSC. It allowed me to pursue my career goals and passion for helping others. Afterwards, I “paid back” my service by working as a midwife in an urban setting that provided care to many women with limited social, economic and emotional supports, and often with language barriers. These woman were strong and heroic in their lives and it was an honor to care for them. Thank you to the NHSC for helping me become a midwife, so I could provide that care.
