students in so many career directions,” Stein says. “The
foundations they receive in the classroom and in the

their role in a service profession. My hope is to help
develop the student as a whole, so he or she can better
serve the patient and the profession.”

“I am excited to begin helping teach the next
generation of nurses,” Stein says, adding that she is
looking forward to getting to know Finlandia students

to live in!”
