NORTH SALEM, N.Y. -- North Salem's Katie Kenny is joining the nursing staff of the University of Texas M.D. Anderson Cancer Center in Houston.
Kenny, a graduate of Mount Saint Mary College in Newburgh, N.Y., will be a clinical nurse in the center’s mixed hematology/oncology unit. She received the job offer weeks before graduation, and will begin her new position in August.
She’s looking forward to returning to the hospital, where she completed a summer internship last year, representatives said in a press release.
“I’ll have the opportunity to constantly improve patient care,” Kenny said. “I’m going to enjoy this.”
During her time at Mount Saint Mary, Kenny built skills through working at Phelps Memorial Hospital in Sleepy Hollow as a medical-surgical technician; and volunteering at Northern Westchester Hospital in Mount Kisco, where she assisted with patient care and preparation for surgery, according to the release.
Throughout Kenny’s college career, nursing professors have been “a huge inspiration” for the enthusiastic graduate, according to the release.
