Why I Refer: A Transformative Experience
NAME: Rebecca Barton
CURRENT JOB: Assistant professor of Classroom and Clinical Nursing at the Raymond Walters College, University of Cincinnati, in Blue Ash, Ohio.
HOW DID YOU LEARN ABOUT WALDEN? I wanted something where I didn’t have to be in class at certain times on certain days. My daughter was 5 and I had to find a program I could take while working and that wouldn’t interfere with my family. I found Walden online and talked to an Enrollment Specialist. At that point, I’d been diagnosed with multiple sclerosis, so an online degree program worked best for me.
WHEN DID YOU KNOW THAT WALDENWAS THE RIGHT PLACE FOR YOU? It was getting my first A. I had been out of school for so long that when I got that A, I thought, “Wow, I can do this!” Also, the Walden degree was more affordable and the support services were always there to help. There’s so much support to help you succeed.
WHY DO YOU REFER OTHERS TO WALDEN? I got so much out of it that I’m a totally different person now. It’s amazing to see the difference in how I teach now compared to three years ago. The coursework in both the MSN and Ed.D. programs has really improved my teaching ability.
