Congratulations to library staff member, Monica Salazar! Monica received her Bachelor of Science degree in Nursing from the University of Texas Pan American in May 2014 and passed the NCLEX-RN examination for licensure as a Registered Nurse in January. In addition to working as a library clerical assistant, Monica has been an avid user of the Ramirez Library, taking advantage of its many resources while working towards her nursing degree. Monica plans to incorporate her past experience as an EMT into her career by pursuing a position as a critical care nurse in the Rio Grande Valley with the expectation of obtaining her Master’s degree in the near future.
Congratulations Monica Salazar

- If you have an e-journal citation, from the Library homepage, click “E-journal” to get started. Type the journal title in the box or use the MEDLINE abbreviation.
- If we have an online version of the journal, the title will be listed with the years of electronic coverage.
- In the event that we do not have electronic coverage, click “Try the Library Catalog” button to see if we have it in print in the Library.
