Kristy Crump is a nursing student at PWSC. She grew up in Valdez, Alaska, and has been commercial fishing for the past 12 years. During a recent interview, Kristy said that fishing has given her “tough skin” which will help her as a nurse. Her experience as a certified nurse aide has also helped prepare her for her future career. Kristy chose PWSC because of the low tuition rates and it’s in her hometown.
