Spotlight Interview: Stephanie See, BSN 2014

Stephanie See“A lot of the projects I was involved with before CHEPS were primarily nursing related. Everybody on those teams had a nursing background so we were in our little nursing bubble. CHEPS really brings in all those multi-disciplinary specialties and areas where people have that common goal of improving patient safety and care. Having that main goal and having different disciplines come together to focus on that brings many different things to the table, whether it’s engineering or nursing or medical or bioengineering. Lots of different disciplines can be brought together, creating a unique approach to tackling problems.”

Spotlight Interview: Vanessa Morales, HEPS Master’s 2014

morales_interview“I realize there is no right or wrong answer necessarily. It is not black and white. There are a lot of grey areas and it has a lot to do with how people feel. How do you deliver this message? How do you present yourself? How are you viewed? In engineering, you’re taught to think very analytically, right or wrong, do this or that. However, there is so much in between in healthcare and it makes it much more interesting than any other domain, especially because we are working with patients, not widgets. I also don’t jump to conclusions. I don’t assume more than I know. I try to gain more information than is needed to solve a problem because you could very easily, be solving the wrong problem.”
