Student leader inspires change
Making a difference is almost second nature to Chandler Tice. The senior nursing major has spent her four years on campus as an active leader and change-maker. She’s currently president of the Nursing Constituency Council, where she has held leadership positions for the last three years. She’s also the May 2016 pinning chair, president of the National Society of Leadership and Success, and student vice president of the Honor Society of Phi Kappa Phi.
“My leadership work gives me the opportunity to practice time management, network with health care professionals in the area, and learn to expand my knowledge of issues outside of the classroom and clinical setting,” she says.
For her leadership in campus life, Tice was recently awarded the Jean Ashwill Leadership Award from the College of Nursing and Health Innovation. She’s also received the Nursing Care of Childbearing Family Clinical Excellence Award and was selected to represent UTA at the AACN Student Policy Summit in Washington, DC.
“I’m inspired to stay involved because I can and do make a difference,” she says.
