#TeamTuesday: Blake Duffer grew up in rural Charlotte County in southern Virginia and began working on a farm in middle school. But he also wanted to work in public safety, so he became an emergency responder in high school, where he began wondering what happened to patients after they got to the hospital.
After graduating from Virginia Tech, Blake began working in VCU Medical Center's emergency department. That’s when the nursing bug really bit him. “…It was always the nurses who were there the whole time, for their whole course of stay.”
So he applied to the UVA School of Nursing's Clinical Nurse Leader program, a fast-track program that allows people with bachelor’s degrees in other fields to earn a master’s in nursing. Last weekend, he graduated and will continue working on VCU’s surgical trauma ICU, where he did his final UVA research project.
