Lucretia Harrington- Spencerian Louisville Alum of the Month
Lucretia Harrington was selected as Alumna of the Month from Spencerian Louisville's campus. She was humbled and honored to have been chosen.
Lucretia studied Nursing at Spencerian and received her degree in 2010. She said, "I chose the program because I felt it offered everything that I was looking for. Nursing was my calling; I love assisting others to help them achieve their highest level of functioning, their quality of life and their healthiest state of being."
We asked Lucretia about her experiences while attending Spencerian. "My favorite thing about Spencerian is that we were a family. Everyone I came in contact with, from my instructors to my classmates were instrumental in helping me achieve my goals. Miss Marie McCormick is one of the many instructors who impacted my journey greatly. Her ambition and hard work is astounding, she left a huge impression on me. I felt like all of my instructors were there to help me achieve what I wanted and prepare me for my career by working hard. In both of my nursing programs at Spencerian, I made life-long friendships and I wouldn't change the experience for anything!" she said.
Lucretia is a travel dialysis nurse with Fresenius Medial Care. "I took this position after working as a facility administrator with another dialysis company. I love what I do while getting to see the world. I thank Spencerian for laying the foundation for myself and so many other students."
Most recently, Lucretia has begun her Masters degree. She hopes to become a Family Nurse Practitioner specializing in dialysis when she is finished.
Lucretia's advice to students is: "Work hard, set expectations of excellence, and know that your instructors are there to assist you in your educational goals. What you get out of your education is what you put in. You have to be the change you want to see in the world!"
