Determination has been a common theme throughout Saxxie Tran’s educational
experience. From college rejections and initially being denied admission to her
nursing program, she has persevered, inspiring those around her.
Saxxie graduates this December from California State University, San Bernardino
with a bachelor of science degree in nursing and a certificate in health equity and
disparities. She is a member of the Sigma Theta Tau International Honor Society of
Nursing and maintains an overall 3.8 GPA. Saxxie’s passion and dedication led her
to serve more than 400 volunteer hours as an orientation leader and coordinator
in Seattle and as a health coach for the San Antonio Regional Hospital Community
Health Improvement Program. She was also elected to advocate for her peers
on the CSU San Bernardino ASI Board of Directors, representing the College of
Saxxie plans to begin her career as an intensive care unit nurse, working toward
becoming an advanced public health nurse and eventually receiving a doctorate
of nursing practice.
