We are continuing our series of highlighting Richland Community College alumni who are on the front lines helping to fight this Pandemic. Today, we share the story of Richland alumna, Gabrielle Sia.
Gabi grew up watching her dad endure Richland's intense nursing program. By seeing how many lives he was able to care for and touch, Gabi was inspired to follow in his footsteps and graduate from Richland Community College in 2018 with her AAS in Nursing.
The faculty and staff at Richland provided Gabi with an immersive experience in the world of nursing and prepared her to work in a critical care setting as an Intensive Care Unit Registered Nurse at HSHS St. Mary's Hospital Decatur. Gabi chose her path to become a nurse so that she could develop the skills to care for and save people during their times of greatest need. Although Gabi never thought that she would have been cut out for the world critical care nursing, she’s now realized that she’s found her niche and we couldn’t be more #richlandproud.
