The Face of Student Success

Samuel Merritt University


Samuel Merritt University nursing alumni earn the highest median salary 10 years after graduating compared to undergraduates from all other California universities and the fifth highest in the nation according to the recently updated College Scorecard from the U.S. Department of Education. While that’s impressive, we’re even more proud of our graduates like Kamya Cook. A graduate with a BSN in December of 2019, Kamya nearly died after the birth of her daughter eight years ago. The trauma triggered a desire in her to care for others, especially moms and children. We salute her spirit and determination. She is a role model for others striving to overcome adversity and serve their local communities.
