My name is Renuka Thakuri. I have been a registered nurse for seven years. In my opinion, the most important way to excel in life is lifelong learning. With that in mind, in 2017, I started my journey to excellence by joining Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) at New York City College of Technology. After graduating from BSN program, I plan to work as a critical care nurse in New York and also earn a master’s degree in nursing (MSN) in order to be able to practice as an Advanced Practice Registered Nurse.
