Janna Gunderson, graduating with a bachelor’s degree in nursing, has secured a job with the clinical resource team at Theda Clark Medical Center in Neenah. She was one of about 80 nurses graduating Saturday. “I started in physical therapy at La Crosse but decided to go into nursing,” the Wautoma native said. “My mom is a nurse and my sister-in-law is a nurse. It runs in our blood. It sounds cliché but I like helping people. I like seeing the reaction I get from patients when they’re getting better. Gunderson and fellow nursing candidates wore special pink ribbons in memory of their fallen classmate, Ashley Kopczynski. Pink was her favorite color.
