Stephanie Winn


Stephanie Winn, a native of Pelham, New Hampshire, is a nursing major, graduating in May 2014. Through an International Research Opportunities Program (IROP) grant, she was able to explore postnatal care practices in rural Nepal. Interested in pursuing midwifery as a career, Stephanie found her adventure in Nepal to be both an invaluable exposure to the field of nursing and a chance to see the real-life applications of her studies. Both the research and cultural aspects of her nine-week journey—from conducting interviews to being welcomed into the homes of the mothers—provided good memories for her. Stephanie found out about Inquiry through the IROP office, and views the online journal as an opportunity to share her unforgettable experiences with others.
