To Whom It May Concern:

I had the privilege of educating Sydney Mank in her second semester medical and surgical clinical rotation. I
knew immediately upon meeting her that she is going to make a great nurse someday. She has an aptitude
for learning and retaining pathophysiology, she excelled at utilization of evidence-based nursing processes,
and she has a great bedside manner that patients found approachable. Sydney is a hard worker and is a
great fit for the Mayo Clinic's Student Nurse Extern Summer Program.

Sydney was the recipient of the Wildcat Excellence Scholarship and Marshall Foundation for Arizona
Women in Nursing Scholarship. She maintains a 3.8 GPA and has over 200 hours of clinical experience in
medical-surgical, obstetrical, long-term care, and pediatric nursing . She has also served as a medical
assistant, alongside a registered nurse, to give children their medication while at camp. Sydney has interest
in may philanthropic endeavors that include participating in community street clean-ups to keep her
community beautiful and she has volunteered at the Southern Arizona AIDS Clinic. She is a well-rounded
individual that will fit in very well with the high performing student cohorts the Mayo Clinic fosters.

When Sydney is not studying, she enjoys yoga, traveling, and working in hospitality/food service. She also
spends a great deal of time with her family. Sydney has life balance that allowed her to always came to
clinical prepared to work hard, contribute to group discussions, and engage with her patients. She also has
a delightful bedside manner.

The Mayo Clinic's Student Nurse Extern Summer Program is training high performing nursing students to
care for complex patient needs. Sydney embodies the Mayo Clinic’s reputation for providing superior care.
She will excel in the didactics portion of the program and then implement clinically what she has learned.
The Mayo Clinic will definitely benefit from such a bright and capable student.

I ask that you consider accepting Sydney Mank into the Mayo Clinic's Student Nurse Extern Summer
Program. She is exactly the type of student that this Mayo Clinic program is searching for.

Very Respectfully,
