I wish this short course was available to me before coming into a nursing degree. It would have helped me so much doing this course before I started as a Bachelor of Nursing student, it would have prepared me so much more.

Thank you, WSU, for being a huge part of my journey into nursing through the attainment of the degree. As a mature age student and having worked from the ground up, from AIN to EN, and now RN, I am excited about what my future holds.
