Tim Mason

Education is one of the four pillars of UNMC's mission, and our students are the lifeblood of that aspect of campus life.

In UNMC Today's Student Spotlight, we get to know some of these students, who will become tomorrow's health care professionals.

Today we meet:

  • Name: Tim Mason
  • Hometown: Kearney, Neb.
  • Program/Year: College of Nursing, senior year

List three songs on your playlist:
I don't own a device that has a play list. I still like listening to the radio and the old tape cassettes and CDs.

What sparked your interest in nursing?
I like helping and working with people. I was a paramedic for 10 years, and I wanted to advance my skills and get into a slower-paced lifestyle. I am very active with my family and working the schedule I had as a paramedic made that difficult.

Your favorite study snack is:
Sunflower seeds

Your favorite app is:
The weather app.

Three things people may not know about you:

  • I love mules and would like to own a pair of them.
  • I like to chill out in front of a fire pit and relax and play my guitar.
  • I hate cats.
