The Execu|Search Group is excited to announce the winner of our 2nd annual MSN Nursing Scholarship, Giuseppina Gaglio. The scholarship was awarded by the Greater New York Association of Healthcare Recruiters and sponsored by Execu|Search.
Giuseppina stood out to us for a few reasons; she did not begin her career as a nurse. She began her career as a Senior Center Director and then went on to become an insurance broker. It wasn’t until the age of 31 that she decided to go back to school and follow her dreams of becoming a nurse. We admired her commitment to pursuing her dreams and starting a new journey, despite the challenges that starting a new career path would bring. She is an inspiration to her 14 year old daughter, setting an example to never walk away from your true calling. As Giuseppina says, “I want my daughter to know that nothing should stand in the way of being the best you can be.“
Giuseppina attended Long Island University where she graduated Magna Cum Laude with her BSN; she is currently obtaining her Master’s degree in the Adult/Geriatric Nurse Practitioner program at Hunter College while working at NYU as a Senior Staff Nurse in the Cardiac Cath lab.
