A nursing student's promise


Being a nursing student at Ohio University has come with a “plethora of emotions” for Courtney Fort, a senior in the College of Health Sciences and Professions.

To gain her footing as an incoming freshman, Fort received support from OHIO’s College Adjustment Program (CAP). In its 33rd year, the program helps students develop academically and works to motivate them toward the successful completion of their undergraduate degree.

Without support from CAP, Fort said, “I wouldn’t be where I am today.”

She is a second generation Bobcat, a member of the first class to graduate from the College of Health Sciences and Profession’s new four-year nursing degree program, and is the first African American to do so. Fort plans to specialize in midwifery after graduating in 2013. Watch to learn more about her promise.
