Hi! I’m Sarah Dohman. I am a born and raised Oregonian, who also happens to have dual citizenship to the U.K. I’m the middle of three children, in a family full of science fanatics. I’m also a second-generation nursing student (my Mum is a RN in Silverton, Oregon).
Nursing piqued my interest as a child: when I was 8 years old, I wrote a pretend letter to the President stating that I wanted to take care of people. However, my path into nursing school has not been a straight-shot: prior to my time at OHSU, I studied at Portland State University, graduating from there in 2009 with a double major in Community Health Education and Health Sciences. Although I thoroughly enjoyed my time at Portland State, I knew I was not done academically speaking. After graduation, I applied to the Monmouth campus, and started here in the Fall of 2010. I have long-term career aspirations to become a DNP, hopefully in family practice or women’s health.
Aside from the wonderful world of nursing, I enjoy baking, spending time with family and friends, volunteering, attending my home church in Salem, crafting, and traveling. I’m excited to share my process as a nursing student on the Monmouth campus with everyone.
