Kelly Samuels

As a professional, I learned that if you are unsure of something or you need help, just ask for it. I think Wilkes stands by that same motto. So I have had questions, I reach out to my professors. They've always been prompt about replying, and the same goes for the clinical placement team. If you email them a question, they'll get back to you quickly.”

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.”

*Since the date of this testimonial, the program has evolved to a 15-month program.

Trenise Griffith

Something that I loved about this program is the attention that I got from my counselors 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.”
