Alayna Hutchinson

Community Health Student

Alayna Hutchinson first encountered the Health & Life Sciences Advising Center early in her career at IUPUI, where she started out as a Pre-Nursing Major. She said that she “always loved science and helping people, so [she] had always considered healthcare.” Alayna did eventually apply to the IU School of Nursing but was unsuccessful in her first attempt. It was then that she turned to HLS for help. Alayna met with both a student success advisor and a career consultant to go over her different options.Continue reading Alayna's story.

Accelerated Nursing Student

Kevin Kimemia wakes up with excitement, knowing that what he will learn today is something that he is interested in and he will use every day in his nursing career. He feels driven to learn more and understand all that he is doing now, because his future patients will depend on him. Kevin is happy because he’s doing what he wants to do and “feel[s] like he has a true purpose now.” But, it wasn’t always so easy for Kevin to get to this point, and he took a non-traditional path to nursing school.Continue reading Kevin's story.

Mackenzie Koch

Cytotechnology Student
