Education is something that is deeply valued in my personal life and career field. Advancing my knowledge as a registered nurse will keep me abreast of current advancements in the nursing field and will afford me the opportunity to perfect my skills, contributing to better patient care. As a full time employee with a hectic personal life, I wanted to find a way to prioritize my education without sacrificing my life. The CUNY School for Professional Studies has afforded me the opportunity to continue my education on my terms and in my own time. This flexible program can help me achieve the goals that I have for professional development even as a working registered nurse.
