WGU Student Newsletter December 2015

December is often labeled as a month for giving and a time we find ourselves scrounging to pick out the “perfect gift” for those that we love and appreciate. You may or may not have realized it, but returning to school is an invaluable gift that you are already giving to your family and those you serve in the workplace. The skills, knowledge, and habits you are developing will be a gift and service to your family, patients, clients, and employees for years to come!
