I love Walden’s mission of positive social change; it is so much of what I value. My joy is not just to have the diploma on the wall, but also to know that I have the capacity to make a difference.
My experience at Walden was exceptional. After enrolling in and completing the BSN program, I learned that I have more than enough time to continue learning and developing in my profession.
I chose Walden because I agreed with the mission of positive social change. Walden has taught me to be self-aware and to give the best of myself to the nursing field to evoke positive outcomes.
