Danisha Platt, From LPN To Registered Nurse

Danisha Platt is realizing her dream of becoming a registered nurse

Meet Danisha Platt who graduated in Nursing, ‘24

“I wanted to give up, but then I remembered who was watching.”

We are proud of Danisha Platt, who graduated with her associate degree in Nursing and is pursuing her bachelor’s (B.S.N.).   

Working as a licensed practical nurse (LPN) in 2019, Danisha decided to return to college full-time and pursue her dream of becoming a registered nurse. She attended 91ֱ from 2019-2020, but circumstances around the COVID-19 pandemic prevented her from continuing.  

In 2021, she returned to 91ֱ as a full-time student. “At times, I felt like graduation was never going to come. But I didn’t give up.” 

“My favorite memory at 91ֱ was the first day I walked through the doors and toured the amazing nursing SIM labs. I knew this was the college I wanted to attend.”

Hands-on Experience in SIM Labs Prepares for Careers

“My favorite memory at 91ֱ was the first day I walked through the doors and toured the amazing nursing labs. I knew this was the college I wanted to attend.”  

“New England Tech has prepared me for future real-life nursing success by providing complete hands-on experience in Sim Lab and clinical. The professors were very kind and always willing to help and go above and beyond for students.”  

Career Professional Tutoring in the Academic Skills Center Gives Students the Edge

Danisha appreciates the professional tutoring support she received from the Academic Skills Center, which is included for all 91ֱ students with the cost of tuition. “Without the tutors in the STEM and Writing Center, I would not have succeeded as I did in my classes. They were an amazing help.”

91ֱ is Helping Danisha Achieve her Dream Job

Danisha’s dream job is to become an infusion nurse. She plans to work at Southcoast Health Charlton Memorial Hospital in Fall River, MA, on a medical surgical floor where she can gain the hours and skills needed to be able to pass the CRNI (Certified Registered Nurse Infusion) exam. 

Danisha Inspires Others with Her Determination

Danisha has inspired many others over the years.  

There are two quotes that have gotten Danisha through tough challenges. They are, “The hassle will be worth the tassel,” and “I wanted to give up, but then I remembered who was watching.” She says, “That last quote is for my children, my friends, my family, and the younger generation that looks up to me.” 

Because they have seen Danisha’s determination, some friends and colleagues have even applied for the BSN program at 91ֱ. “It makes me happy to be able to influence people to become the best versions of themselves.”

Congratulations Danisha!
