Kaplan University kicks off its ninth Kaplan University Speakers
Series webinar with Col. Susan Luz, a registered nurse, decorated
soldier and author of The Nightingale of Mosul (Kaplan
Publishing, April 2010). As a top-ranking nurse in the army
reserve, Col. Luz was deployed to Iraq at age 56. She was awarded
the Bronze Star in 2007 for meritorious service in the care of
wounded soldiers, contractors, Iraqi civilians and detainees. In
the interactive webinar titled "One Nurse's Journey: A
conversation with Susan Luz," Col. Luz will discuss her
experiences transitioning from civilian to military life, working
as a public health nurse, becoming a combat nurse and receiving
the Bronze Star.
Col. Luz is the highest ranking soldier in the 399th
Combat Support Hospital, an army reserve unit based out of
Massachusetts. Trained as a nurse, she has lived a life devoted to
public service and has worked in inner-city schools, jails and
adolescent psychiatric wards. A former Peace Corps volunteer in
Brazil, she holds a nursing degree from the University of Rhode
Island and a master's degree in public health from Boston
University. No stranger to military circles, her father is a World
War II veteran who served under General Patton. Her father-in-law
is the late George Luz Sr., who was portrayed by actor Rick Gomez
in the Band of Brothers HBO miniseries based on Stephen
Ambrose's bestselling book by the same name.
