Dr. Jamey Frasure graduated from UC College of Nursing with a bachelor's in 1983 and a master's in adult health nursing in 1997. She received her PhD at West Virginia University in 2009 and currently works as Administrative Director at the National Institutes of Health (NIH) StrokeNet National Coordinating Center.
Student Rachel Conway recently caught up with Jamey to ask her about her experiences as a nursing student and what she's up to now.
What are your favorite memories of UC?
My friends in my 1983 class. I enjoyed spending time with my friends and my roommates, and I also enjoyed my clinical rotations.
Were you involved in any extracurricular activities?
I worked as a student nurse at Holmes Hospital, so there wasn't much time to get involved in things on campus.
Who influenced you the most as a student?
Helen Miller had a huge impact on me as an undergraduate student. She was very supportive. Dr. Elaine Miller Miller was an invaluable resource to me during my graduate courses.
What are your current interests?
I like walking, especially walking in groups, playing pickle ball with my family and volunteering at St. Mary's Catholic Church.
What's your best advice for nursing students?
Keep your mind open and take advantage of all opportunities. You never know what you may want to do in the future.
