PEMBROKE — Leyia Bullard Oxendine, a 2017 graduate of UNC Pembroke, has been accepted to the Physician Assistant program at Methodist University. 


Oxendine of Pembroke earned a bachelor of science in nursing. She plans to return to Robeson County and serve as a healthcare provider.  

“I thoroughly enjoyed the small class sizes and how they allowed for one-on-one experiences with my professors,” Oxendine said. “Drs. Astrid Oviedo, Siva Mandjiny and Rachael Smith are just a few names that come to mind when I think of my time at UNCP. As professors, they pushed and encouraged to me perform. I also am thankful to God for such a wonderful opportunity.”  

While at UNCP, Oxendine was an active member of the NC-Health Career Access Program (HCAP). The physician assistant program begins Aug. 16.
