Daniel Blake


Instructor of Nursing

After graduating from the University of Oklahoma, Mr. Blake served in the US Army for six years.  As an officer in the aviation branch, he flew Blackhawk helicopters and was in Germany when the USSR collapsed and the Berlin Wall was torn down.  He left the Army after the first gulf war.

After leaving the Army, he entered nursing school here at Nicholls.  As an RN he has worked at several of the local healthcare facilities in several different areas of nursing.

“I wish someone had told me what a great career nursing was when I was 18!”

“Being a nurse provides me with the opportunity to serve my community when they are at their most vulnerable. I love providing what families need when they are hurting, not because of what I get out of it but because I will want someone there for me when I am in their shoes. Nursing connects us all together as one family.  When you help a family through an end-of-life situation, you become part of their family and that family becomes part of you.

“I have returned to my alma mater to teach the next generation of nurses because it is time to pass it forward.”
