Wilmington University graduate Danielle Hughes was among four Distinguished Alumni honored at the 10th anniversary ceremonies at The Shirlee and Bernard Brown University Center at Cumberland County College in Vineland, New Jersey.
Since opening in 2008, the University Center has filled more than 9,000 bachelor’s and master’s level seats in support of students completing their advanced degrees through partnerships with prominent universities, including WilmU.
Hughes, who received her master’s in Nursing at Wilmington, began her higher education journey at CCC, where she earned an RN degree in 2010. She began working full-time in the field of oncology immediately after graduating from Cumberland and became certified to administer chemotherapy and biotherapies while also enrolled in Wilmington’s BSN program, offered through the University Center. Her passion for helping people “fight their fight” led her to become an OCN (Oncology Certified Nurse).
She is a lead clinical practice nurse in medical hematology and oncology at MD Anderson in New Jersey, where she has developed patient and chemotherapy education programs.
