Student Testimonial

This has been a tremendous experience from beginning to end. I am so grateful to you all. The DNP leadership program truly prepared me to become the patient care director I am today of two acute pediatric cardiac ICUs. It reinforced my knowledge of physiology and pharmacology. It developed my human resource skills in hiring for success, mentoring, and molding my critical care team. From quality and safety initiatives, patient experience, employee engagement in perusing evidence-based practice, research, and professional development, I owe to this program giving me the resources and knowledge to share with the next generation of nurses. It prepared me for organizational readiness, ways to pitch ideas to senior leadership, support my team in abstract submissions, presentations at conference and winning awards for quality outcomes. Most rewarding is the outreach initiatives to neighboring community, supporting vaccinations, food drives and follow-up appointment not to lose our patients in the system.

What seemed like a long journey now feels it’s over in a flash. You all gave me a comprehensive foundation for lifelong success.

Fondest Regards,
