Taryn Fowlds, RN, BSN, CCRN

Associate Degree in Health Sciences from LAMC- 2014

Bachelor of Science in Nursing and Minor in Business Administration from Mount Saint Mary's University- 2017

I currently work as a Registered Nurse at UCLA in the ICU and recently obtained my CCRN in critical care. I am also apart of the Nurse Resident Mentor Program where I assist new nurse residents in their transition from novice to competent professional nurse during their first year in the clinical environment.

I would not be where I am today if it weren't for the amazing professors at Los Angeles Mission College and all of their help along the way. Thank you all for everything that you do!

Daniel Roth Weinitz, RN, MSN

I am currently a Registered Nurse in the ICU at UCLA and most recently have graduated with my MSN from UCLA’s MECN program.  I was inspired to pursue nursing after finding out what it entailed after my father had passed in the ICU and was totally enamored by how knowledgeable nurses were.  I knew I wanted to have an impact in someone's life and be more directly involved with patient care! The STEM programs at Los Angeles Mission College (LAMC) not only prepared me for the fast paced accelerated program I was about to enter, but helped me flourish and help others with the materials and knowledge provided by LAMC.  I can’t stress enough how incredible the program is and how well they prepare you to help others! Thank you LAMC!
