Mikko Arceno, BSN
By Brent Davis
Mikko is an RN at Long Beach Memorial Medical Center in their ortho/neuroscience unit and also a teaching assistant at AUHS. One of the great influences on her decision to go into nursing was seeing her mother work as an RN through the years. Mikko would also love to leave a positive impact on the people she serves and to grow and develop as a nurse.
During her time at AUHS Mikko participated in many volunteer activities. From these she Learned effective time management and a heightened awareness that she should show gratitude for the blessings in her life which, she believes, adds an unique dimension to her service to others
As for the future, she is excited about returning to school to pursue her doctorate in nursing, a step that will advance her career. Then, she hopes to one day open her own practice.
Mikko exhibits the values and competence that AUHS graduates are expected to demonstrate, and so we are so pleased to present her profile to you. Mikko, you are definitely leaving a positive impact!
