Why Widener?

Widener's School of Nursing provided me with an excellent education while I obtained not one but two prestigious degrees (MSN/FNP and DNP). I learned an extraordinary amount about the profession, but most importantly about how to care for people locally, nationally, and globally. I'm honored to give back to a university that has taught me so much as a faculty member in my hometown of Harrisburg, PA.
