Norma Suarez ’97
Norma Suarez ’97 recently graduated with a PhD in nursing with a focus on education and research from the University of Hawaii. She is employed at Brooke Army Medical Center in San Antonio as a family nurse practitioner and clinical researcher. However, that position is on hold since she is an activated Air Force reservist; she prepares Army, Air Force, and Navy nurses for deployment by providing them the nursing education and skills needed to care for trauma patients in Iraq or Afghanistan. Norma hopes to move back to Hawaii to continue research or educational work with the military.
