The woman who is the first person known to have contracted the Ebola virus in the United States Nina Pham, was graduated from college about four years ago knowing she wanted to be a nurse. Now she is in an isolation unit at the Dallas hospital where she worked.

The nurse, whose name has not been released by officials, has been identified by friends and family and in media reports as Nina Pham, 26.

Officials have said that Nina Pham had frequent contact with Liberian national Thomas Eric Duncan over the 11 days he was treated for Ebola at Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital in Dallas. Duncan died on Wednesday.

She was among 50 people asked by the hospital to take part in the delicate and difficult care of Duncan, who was the first person diagnosed with Ebola in the United States.

Officials have said they do not know how Pham contracted the deadly virus. She was in stable condition on Monday.
