Michael Poeschel- A Great Pursuit

I am just a small town kid and I have taken advantage of my opportunity here at UW-Madison. I am living life to the fullest and am pursuing my nursing career with great enthusiasm. I am unique in that I am a male in the nursing field, but I believe I can help change that by being a positive influence.

A letter grade is not what you should entirely be working for at school. You should ultimately be studying and working hard to LEARN.

I have a lot of pride in where I came from, who I am, and where I am going in life. I try to represent myself, my family, my peers, my school, and my town very positively. My reputation is my inspiration.

I am a staff member for Madison School and Community Recreation’s Water Walking Program where I work one-on-one in a pool with disabled adults. I have been on the UW Men’s Crew team and I play intramural football and basketball.

I plan on working in the Operating Room at UW Hospital when I graduate. I am also thinking about going back to school to become a nurse anesthetist or practitioner after I have some real nursing experience.

The Gwen P. Shapiro Rural Wisconsin Nursing Scholarship is AWESOME. It shows that there are people out there who have the same pride I have about the nursing profession. It is a generous gift that really allows me to focus on school and my clinical experiences.
