Meet Our ERSCA Mentor

Brittany Swan
2017-2018 ERSCA Peer Mentor: Brittany Swan

Hello all, my name is Brittany Swan and I am a third year here at San Jose State University. I am pursuing the Nursing major and I am also pursuing a minor in Nutrition. My research interests began when I was first introduced to this program. As someone who had never done research before, I jumped at the opportunity to be able to connect with faculty members who would help guide me through conducting a research project.

My research interests are also very reflective of my career goals. Conducting research that was relevant to my major was an engaging way to learn about research and learn about something I had never explored in my field before. This program is very beneficial as it connects you to resources on campus, faculty members, and even teaches you a few new things about yourself. If you let it, this is an opportunity that will allow you to build skills that are relevant inside and out of the classroom and I am so glad I was given the opportunity to be a part of it!
