NIC pre-nursing student earns biology award
North Idaho College pre-nursing student Molly McCarthy of Post Falls was recently selected as the recipient of the Burns Award at NIC.
The Burns Award, which is given annually to an outstanding student in the NIC biology department, is named in honor of W. James Burns, Jr., who taught in NIC’s biology department for 21 years and served as a member of the Panhandle Health District board.
A graduate of Coeur d’Alene High School, McCarthy has excelled this year in biological sciences, especially microbiology and human anatomy and physiology.
She plans to enter the nursing program at NIC this fall, working toward a degree in registered nursing. She hopes to become a travel nurse for several years, balancing her education with field experience before returning to school to pursue a doctoral degree.
McCarthy has worked as a flight attendant for Delta Airlines, taught snowboarding classes and considers herself a travel fanatic.
