    Anne James credits her small classes at SFA for her success as a registered nurse. More than a decade after graduating from SFA, she still remembers fondly the one-on-one attention she received from SFA faculty members like Dr. Sara Bishop. The encouragement from Anne’s professors in the School of Nursing helped her persevere even when her courses grew challenging. She also discovered her love for labor and delivery nursing while at SFA and has turned it into a successful career.
