Molly Genta, MSN, BSN, RN, Former PAP Director

Molly obtained my Bachelors of Science in Nursing from UIC College of Nursing in 2012 and my Masters of Science in Nursing from Benedictine University in 2015. She had a desire to give back to the community in a manner that these work experiences could not provide. She wanted to be a contributing member of the community she lived in, to promote health and wellness.

"The experiences I have had at Avicenna have been like no other. I am honored to reflect on my time spent at Avicenna as a nurse volunteer and realize the large impact I was able to be a part of, helping patients improve their overall health and wellness!"
