When Ashanti McPhee came to Gardner-Webb University to play football, he never expected he would discover his career in nursing. Through a curriculum that broadly exposed him to a variety of subjects, he uncovered an interest in the profession and an opportunity to help others. McPhee initially thought he wanted to pursue a degree and career in marine biology, but a general biology course helped him realize it was the human body that fascinated him enough to pursue further studies.
