Monica Elia knew her future
would be in nursing when in high
school she job-shadowed at Henry
Ford Hospital and witnessed the
compassion and caring an R.N.
had for her patients.

This fall, Monica begins another
year at Wayne State University's
College of Nursing, which receives
1,600 applications a year for just
100 openings.

One highlight at Wayne State so
far: Monica was invited by Dr.

Jessie Casida, assistant professor
at the College of Nursing, to help
conduct sleep-study research on
post-cardiac surgery patients.
In just her second year, she
participated in an 18-month
study that most nursing students
wouldn't experience until
graduate school.

Monica is recognized by the
National Society of Collegiate
Scholars and has made the dean's
list four times. She also embraces

her heritage by being part of
organizations like the Chaldean
American Student Association.

Wayne State offers the
advantage of learning in a
research environment to more
first-generation, minority and
nontraditional students than any
college or university in Michigan.
Which is one reason why students
like Monica may be unusual at
most schools, but at Wayne State,
they're unusually common.
