My name is Carson Hagood, and I am a 21-year-old nursing student from Lewisburg, Tennessee. I will be graduating from the University of North Alabama with my BSN in May of 2017 and hopefully go on to work in critical care before applying for a nurse anesthetist program in the next two or three years. I am so blessed and honored to receive this scholarship that will help me to reach my goal of becoming a nurse. Nurses are so important because they are the men and women who heal the body, mind, and spirit of their patients through hands of knowledge, love, and compassion. I am so excited to begin working in this career field, care for my future patients, and further the horizons of males in the profession. The future of nursing is bright, but I desire to make it shine even brighter!

My role as a Support Worker on STW and the experience I have acquired from previous job roles has provided me with the opportunity to develop excellent interpersonal communication skills and enabled me to be confident and comfortable giving feedback to clients on a variety of issues. On a daily basis I communicate with clients, employers, colleagues and local govt. agencies such as the Job centre and SSA. In addition I have to review my clients monthly and deliver effective feedback on their performance in placement and after placement interviews. I feel that these skills are very transferable to the mentoring process and as a result I have felt very comfortable holding my mentoring sessions and delivering effective feedback to my mentees in order to help them achieve their goals.
