Here’s another voicemail story, this time from the father of a recent graduate of our Ida Moffett School of Nursing.  “In only his second month (of employment at a hospital), they had an emergency where someone was nonresponsive.  It was my son who performed chest compressions and saved the patient’s life.  The charge nurse was there, was present, and commended him for it.  Again, it’s a testament to the outstanding training and education at Samford.  He’s too humble to tell you, but I’m a proud dad for what he did.”   

The world is better because of the competence, compassion and readiness of Samford graduates.
