B.S. in Nursing (RN to BSN)
Virtua Home Care, RN, Admissions Nurse

With both kids leaving for college, the time was right and the opportunity presented itself through Rowan and my employer – Virtua Health. I had been thinking about it for a few years and was unable to find a suitable program that met my needs until now.

The program requirements were very “do-able” with my work schedule and I was able to transfer many credits from my AS degree. I also liked the idea of obtaining a degree from a university with an excellent reputation as opposed to one of the “online only” schools that advertise heavily on TV.

It is a perfect fit as I can study and do online assignments and listen to lectures around my work schedule, sometimes late at night or early in the mornings and on weekends which is a big plus when you work full-time. The online component has been a great asset to achieving my goal and I like the fact that I never have difficulty contacting anyone “live” at the university either from the nursing department, the library or the tech support assistants whenever I call for help.

I have been an RN for 22 years and was ready to advance my degree. I was also pleased to see that 2 of the course I am taking will transfer to a Masters program so I can continue on upon graduation
