Being a student at Walden University is one of the best things that has happened to me in my life. As a father, husband, and worker, I was able to navigate this triangular responsibility alongside my academic challenges.
I have been able to adjust my workload to the other demands on my time—specifically work and family. In addition, the reasonable fee structure has made it feasible for me to participate at this time, despite having a child in college.
Pursuing a degree from Walden is a commitment to efficiency and quality in healthcare.
