Student Testimonials

Celia Rossini

Being able to put your career aside is one of the most important elements for success as a student in this program. Your academics deserve your undivided attention for the 12 months that it takes to fulfill your dream of becoming a nurse. While the days feel long and the weeks feel short, I can assure you from my experience as a student at Wilkes University, absolutely every single second spent studying, learning, and engaging at clinicals has been worth it. I am amazed at the amount of knowledge I have gained in only 6 months of this program, and the lifelong relationships I have formed with my classmates.”

Trenise Griffith

Something that I loved about this program is the attention that I got from my advisors early on, before even being accepted to the program. I was able to talk with my advisor over the phone and ask all of the questions that I had at the time to decide whether or not to move forward with the program. I had looked at a lot of schools, but this one fit what I needed."

Wilkes university nursing Elizabeth Swinny

A colleague of mine was enrolled in the DNP program at Wilkes and spoke very highly of the curriculum and faculty, so my decision was based on a credible recommendation. I had researched four other programs before deciding on Wilkes; it was definitely the right choice for me."

Wilkes University Colonel

My experiences as a PhD in Nursing student at Wilkes University have been overwhelmingly positive! The program is rigorous but I would not have expected it to be any other way. The faculty have been very responsive to my professional as well as personal needs. I have learned and grown a great deal since enrolling in the program and by taking two courses each semester, I am on track to completing the program in 35 months."
