“The exceptional faculty, facilities, and clinical placements at Seattle University have all helped me to develop the skills necessary to effectively serve the mental health needs of my community. I am confident that my experiences at Seattle University will prove invaluable as I begin my career as a family psychiatric mental health nurse practitioner.” - Jeffrey Kendall (DNP Class of 2018)
