Widener has done a really good job preparing me for what hands-on work was going to look like, how I can use my major, and what options I have.

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.

More Than Just Professors

The women and men of the Widener faculty bring a whole new meaning to the phrase "Above and Beyond."

Close and Personal

At its best, learning is a two-way exchange, an ongoing conversation. Our professors provide constant, continual feedback that helps you improve your writing, thinking, research, and clinical skills. They teach and then they mentor. This investment takes considerable time and energy. Our professors think it's worth it.

Career Building

Deeply Connected

Our size is just right for developing relationships. Big enough to find mentors who share your interests and understand your goals. Small enough for you to find your way into a professor's lab for research collaboration. Relationships matter moving forward. Your Widener professors will be resources for life.
