How did earning your degree advance your career?
It allowed me to qualify for a higher leadership position. I have actually had three promotions after receiving my degree at WGU.
Why was WGU a good fit for you?
WGU is a great fit for healthcare workers, due to its flexibility and the ability to work at your own pace, as our schedules are often unpredictable. Also, financially, I did not have to take out huge loans just to get a great education.
Would you recommend WGU?
Yes. WGU is affordable and a great education geared to the adult learner. You can get your degree done in six months to a year, or take your time, depending on your personal responsibilities.
What was the best thing about your WGU experience?
My mentor Rose Sklar was incredible. I could not have done it without her. She truly kept me going until completion.
