A few years ago, I decided to further my education and look for an institution that would fit my work and personal life. I ended up choosing Wilkes University because of the way the DNP program was structured. The program Director guided me towards the right path and even adjusted my coursework for to accommodate unforeseen realities of life. The professors were all knowledgeable and supportive."

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."
