Carly Masse, RN, practices nursing in the Intensive Care Unit at The Miriam Hospital.

A native of New Jersey, Masse came to Rhode Island to study at URI. Initially, like many young college students, she was undecided about her major. Her inspiration to pursue nursing came by chance during a visit to a friend in the hospital. Masse witnessed a nurse caring for a child who had cancer, and it opened her eyes to nursing as a profession.

It was only natural, though, that Masse found her way to nursing: Her grandmother and mother were nurses, too.

For five years, Masse has been working in The Miriam’s intensive care unit, where currently she is caring for the most severely ill COVID-19 patients.
