Muna Habib, BA, BSN, RN
Certified Nurse-Midwifery (CNM) Program | DNP Class of 2024
I was born to Filipino and Iraqi immigrant parents and grew up in a large family on the Eastside of WA. My educational background with a Bachelor’s degree in Sociology from the University of Washington provided me with essential knowledge on the necessity for diverse perspectives in order to address the health needs of a global society. As a multiracial woman raised in a suburb of Seattle, I am provided with multiple dimensions of experiences which play a role in the healthy living of diverse groups. Navigating through society with this multiracial lens has also afforded me the ability to understand that cultural differences are important considerations to take when providing holistic care to populations.
My commitment to caring for women, birthing individuals and families is furthered by the educational opportunities that I have been fortunate enough to have gained in the APNI-DNP program at Seattle University. I chose to pursue this graduate degree at SU because of its commitment to tackling the social injustices faced by populations, providing holistic care, and developing global nurse leaders. I am grateful to this program for having enhanced my knowledge and skills as a BSN-prepared Obstetrics and Perinatal Registered Nurse now working in a community health clinic serving underserved individuals and families throughout Seattle. My hope is that as a future Nurse Midwife, my professional and educational experiences will provide me with the necessary knowledge and skills to bring about change to the health outcomes of both local and global populations. I aspire to serve communities in hospitals and birth centers where I can organize in ways to find tangible solutions to issues that diverse groups of women and birthing individuals face.
