An open door, a friendly face, a helpful expert

Pre-health majors can find what they need by meeting with Marguerite Degenhardt. “My role is to work closely with students who are interested in careers in the health fields and provide resources to help them make informed decisions regarding pre-professional preparation,” she says. Degenhardt, an advanced practice nurse/neonatal nurse practitioner, is a former assistant professor at Rush University College of Nursing. She asks questions about why students are drawn to the health field and explains what type of experiences they will need for preparation, how to select the right post-baccalaureate program and meet the prerequisites, and how to make their applications as strong as possible.
