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. Dani Hillenbrand was already attending nursing school at George Fox University's College of Nursing last year when she suffered what was described as a catastrophic medical event that left her confined to a wheelchair. 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.
