As a Master of Nursing–Family Practice student, Lauren Beaudry realized that she was not only interested in working as a nurse in an international setting, but she wanted to expand her health care skill set to include global health research and program development. Duke’s Master of Science in Global Health helped her fulfill this goal. She completed both her nurse practitioner and global health degrees in 2013.
