Charlie Johnson, Webster Class of 2022, is a registered nurse earning a Master of Science in Nursing degree. He is a nurse manager in emergency services at a local St. Louis hospital and has been caring for COVID-19 patients from the very beginning of the outbreak. Charlie still finds a way to be optimistic in the midst of the hard work.
“This is a challenging time for us in the hospital. The demands of my job have made going to school much harder, but my professors have been very accommodating.”
“I went into nursing to help people. I cope by knowing I have a job to do that gives me a sense of gratification, and I am helping the COVID patients get through their time in the hospital.”
“I want other students to know that we will get through this. Webster is a great school, and they will help students. Eventually we will be able to get back to class. The way we’ve come together as a community has been amazing.”
Let's show Charlie, and the other Webster student front-line responders, our gratitude for their sacrifice in a tangible way. The Front-Line Responders Fund provides financial assistance to students working on the front lines, assuring that they will continue their degrees on the other side of COVID-19. Please donate now to the fund. Your gesture will be appreciated, and your gift will make a difference.
Charlie encourages us all to stay positive. “It takes everyone to fight this pandemic. Do your part, and we will get through this.”
