Shirlene Solomon has profoundly changed my life. It was a pleasure coming to clinical and having such an incredibly smart, fun, and sincere instructor. She was always there to ensure our success in the clinical setting and always had our backs. She saw so much in me and invested her time in crafting my fellow classmates and me. I am honored, blessed, and grateful to have had such an incredible person shape me into becoming the future nurse that I will become. I am forever reminded that I am the leaning elephant and she gave me the tools that I needed to change a patient’s life for the better.
