Profile, Alumni


by Gabrielle Deonath
 

Chelsea Wollman is a cum laude Bachelor of Science 2014 graduate of The College of Nursing and Public Health at Adelphi University. During her time here, Wollman held numerous leadership positions, including president of the Student Nurses Acting for Progress organization, a student representative on the nursing faculty senate, a resident assistant, a senior admissions  ambassador, and a four-year member of the nationally ranked women’s soccer team. She also interned at the Veteran Affairs Hospital in the Bronx, where she gained hands-on experience for her professional career.

Upon graduation from college, she was accepted into a Critical Care Nurse Fellowship program at North Shore University Hospital in the neurosurgical intensive care unit, where she was trained by top hospital educators and mentored by the staff. Wollman is now pursuing her passion as a clinical ladder III registered nurse in critical care, where she has the opportunity to work alongside neurointensivists every day to better understand the human mind and body, and provide her patients with all the care and support they need to reach their utmost potential. Wollman also works part-time for NYU Winthrop in the radiology department where she practices alongside the interventional radiology team on various procedures.

Wollman has made it a priority to stay connected to the Adelphi community in many ways. She is currently president of the school’s Alpha Omega Chapter of Sigma Theta Tau International Honor Society. She also serves as a member of the executive committee for the Adelphi University Women’s Giving Circle as the social media chair. Wollman was recently selected as one of Adelphi University’s 10 Under 10 Recipients for 2017.

Wollman’s Tips for a Positive College and Post-Grad Experience:

  1. “Graduating from college with debt can be difficult, but having a financial plan and putting in the work early as a new grad can pay off in the long run. As much as it may not seem important at the time, I strongly encourage new graduates to investigate their new job offer letters and have a solid understanding of the medical and retirement options available to them.”
  2. “Be as involved as possible. I took full advantage of everything that the Adelphi community had to offer. I immediately immersed myself in on-campus activities and joined as many clubs and activities as I could. In doing so, I was able to create multiple friend groups, each with a different interest.”
  3. “Impossible is nothing. Do not ever let anyone tell you that you cannot do something. If you have the passion and dedication to do something, then you will be able to succeed.”
