South University Alumna Uses Education and Experience to Begin New Business

2015, Master of Science in Nursing with a Specialization in Nurse Educator South University, Online Programs

“Now is the time to make your career something you love, not just a job.”

Emily Han is using her South University Master of Science in Nursing with a Specialization in Nurse Educator degree to launch a business that will change how she delivers healthcare to her patients.

Han is the founder of magicMD, a telemedicine service for visitors to the Orlando, Florida area. With more than 62 million visitors a year, Han believes her city is the perfect place to deliver healthcare via this technology.

“I founded magicMD after recognizing an unmet need in our state. I had to use all my nursing education and other knowledge in order to make it all come together,” Han explains. “I did everything from the ground up, including the concept. Daily, I am responsible for the operations, finances and marketing.

“Also, in addition to daily operations, finances and networking, a huge part of my responsibilities include keeping on top of nursing/healthcare trends and best practices, and acting as liaison between patients and physicians to create the best possible care experience for our patients. This bridging of clinical skills, while designing the optimal patient experience and using key business and networking skills to meet patient and caregiver need, is what my degree helped me compile and achieve.”

Han says her South University, Online Programs education helped prepare her for her next career step.

“By allowing me to continue working during school and applying new knowledge, as well as creating my own preceptor experiences in an area of interest, I was able to carve my way to a successful business and many great, relevant connections.

“I love that my degree and knowledge have helped me see the limitless opportunity we have as nurses. The freedom and excitement of my new career is something that I never could have imagined, but I look forward to innovating and paving the way for others to do the same.”
