Nursing has always been Sue Berto’s passion, and serving in the military allowed her to make a difference in more ways than she could have imagined.
My name is Sue Berto, and I am an RN, MSN and full-time nursing professor at Herzing University in Kenosha, Wisconsin. My nursing career began in 1974 when I obtained my LPN. I later earned my ADN and BSN as well as my MSN in Nursing Education. Prior to joining the Herzing faculty in May 2014, I received an Army Accommodation Medal for my work as a nurse in Operation Desert Storm.
Though it has been nearly 30 years since I wore a military uniform in the U.S. Army’s 534th MP unit at Fort Clayton in the Panama Canal Zone, some days it seems almost like yesterday. I am very proud of my service as an NCO and thankful for the friends and mentors that I met along the way. Recently, I had an opportunity to complete a tandem jump with the U.S. Army Golden Knights, and I must say that as an Army veteran, it does not get much better than that.
