Herzing-Atlanta Graduate Sharese Windley Earns Nursing Degree after 20 Years

July 13, 2018

Sharese Windley started college in 1998, but it wasn’t until this year that she finally earned her nursing degree. After battling a chronic illness throughout adulthood and taking time off from school to raise her family, Windley made the decision to enroll in the BSN program at Herzing University-Atlanta in 2015.

“I knew that if I didn’t finish school now I never would. At that point, I had been a stay-at-home mom for 10 years, and I felt like the opportunity was slipping away,” Windley remembers.

Herzing proved to be a good fit. Many of Windley’s pre-requisite credits transferred over, and flexible class schedules, including evening courses, allowed her to balance schoolwork and raising her family.

Windley graduated Magna Cum Laude with a Bachelor of Science in Nursing from Herzing University Atlanta in April 2018. She’s since been accepted to the RN residency program at Emory University Midtown Hospital in Atlanta – her dream job.

Recently, Windley was featured in the Atlanta Journal Constitution. Read her full story here.

“Everything I went through made me realize that anything is possible,” she says. You just have to find your own way because the same process or path doesn’t work for everyone.”
