"I have always wanted to work in an ICU. Even through virtual classes and the pandemic, Wallace's instructors helped us excel." Brandon Hurst , Associate Degree Nursing

Because of Wallace

Brandon Hurst recently achieved a dream he has had since middle school – working in an ICU.

Achieving the goal took a few detours.

Several years ago, he and his family transferred to Dothan with his employer at the time – Publix. His interest in his long-held dreams began to develop again since he was so close to Wallace.

He enrolled in the Associate Degree Nursing Program – and thrived.

“Brandon led his peers in study groups and the service organization (WANS). He volunteered to tutor other students since his second term,” said Joy Whitlow. “He relates to patients and their families with compassion.”

Hurst applied for, and received, a position at Shands Thoracic Vascular ICU working with lung transplant patients. The job is what he always dreamed of, and he gives Wallace instructors credit for the education and help that he received to complete the program and achieve his dream. In addition, he will be back in the Lake City, Florida area around family. His dreams have just begun.
