Christian Casanova is a nursing student at Missouri State University. Casanova is from Rogersville, Missouri, and attended Logan-Rogersville High School.
His favorite course has been Pathophysiology.
“It has been amazing getting to apply the combined knowledge of anatomy, physiology, and microbiology all into one course and gaining understanding about what happens in the body when functions are altered, intruded or inhibited,” Casanova said.
For Casanova, the best part of being a Bear is the faculty and staff.
“In a total of 8 semesters, I have yet to meet a professor or staff member who does not care deeply about the students, student success and the community of MSU,” he said.
Upon graduation from the BSN program, Casanova plans to obtain a position as a registered nurse in a cardiovascular intensive care unit.
“The highly organized and in-depth care that is required in intensive care units, along with patients with differing cardiac and vascular issues, is something that I highly gravitate toward.”
