Newberg Woman Becomes First Wheelchair User to Graduate from Nursing School

(Newberg, OR) -- A 23-year-old Newberg woman is paving the way for other disabled Oregonians by becoming the first wheelchair user to graduate from nursing school in Oregon.

Hillenbrand says she has overcome preconceived ideas about the disabled among many people that she thinks will help make her a better and stronger healthcare employee.
