Nursing Professor Susan Nickell Behmke is like a proud mother-working with students and seeing them graduate are her favorite parts of teaching at CSM. And like a mother, it's hard for her to pick just one student over the last 20-plus years she's been most happy to see graduate from the nursing program. But, one success story stays with her always. Behmke remembers a high-risk student who completed the nursing program with much effort. Behmke spent a lot of extra time and energy with the student and when he received his Maryland Board of Nursing exam results, Behmke also received a copy of that report with the message: 'Thank you, Ms. Behmke' written by the student, in red ink. It is students and moments like these that keep Behmke preparing future nurses for the healthcare field.
"CSM students get a quality education from a dedicated faculty--they are committed to providing a high level of education and are concerned with students' learning."
