Check it Out: Alumni Spotlight


Bryan Hansen graduated from Morningside College in 2009 with a Bachelor of Science in Nursing and a minor in psychology.

Hansen chose to attend Morningside because he was impressed with the nursing faculty and felt like it was the right fit for him and his aspirations.

Upon graduation from Morningside, Hansen went to further his education and get his master’s degree and his doctorate at John Hopkins School of Nursing. He now serves as the assistant professor there.

Hansen said that his favorite thing about Morningside was “the people that I interacted with. I think both the faculty and student interaction was a great experience. I received both personal attention and support in everything that I did.”

While attending Morningside, Hansen was involved in various groups and organizations such as Psi Chi, Omicron Delta Kappa, and Sigma Theta Tau International. He also got involved and volunteered in the community as well.

Hansen’s advice for current students was to network with individuals on campus. He said, “The networks you develop at Morningside will stay with you for the rest of your life, so take advantage of building your network and making connections.” Hansen also wanted to tell students to “take courses in stuff that does not apply to your major. It is one of the most valuable things that I did.”

Hansen’s advice to young alumni? “After you get established in your career and life, keep in touch with Morningside and your roots. After a few years, reach back to the college and always keep in touch.”
