At the heart of the Widener experience are the talented and caring professors who make their students' education and personal well-being their first priority.
Guidance and connections from mentors help place our students on the inside track to personal and professional success.
I knew that coming to Widener would mean opportunities to meet speakers working in the industry. And, I know that when the time comes, I will be able to turn to them to help find a job.
When I’m in a patient’s room, assessing and giving medications, I hear my professors’ voices from lectures. They’ve made me the best nurse I could possibly be and continue to grow into.
You make time for the things you love. I love chemistry and learning. I love being a leader on campus and learning how to be a better person every day.
“I always wanted to be a doctor. I think it was an intrinsic motivation that I’ve always had.”
Having an MBA from Widener and being exposed to health care management will allow me to help even more patients than I would in an eight-hour, in-person shift.
What I’ve learned through the MEd program is the skills to succeed, whether it is organizational administration, coaching and developing leaders, or even the vernacular to know what is going on in the world of higher education.
