A Herzing Education Offers Veterans a Path to Career Progression
Carey Martell is a licensed practical nurse in the Navy Reserve and plans to complete the Bachelor of Science in Nursing program at Herzing University. As part of a recent feature in Reserve + National Guard Magazine, Martell and others from Herzing heralded the importance of adding academic credentials to your existing military experience.
Jeff Walker, an assistant professor in nursing at Herzing, has first-hand experience with the effects of the insufficient support veterans receive when going back to school. Now, he enriches the lives of the next generation of student veterans, encouraging them to combine what they’ve learned from the military with their education wherever possible.
The article also features Jarvis Racine, Herzing’s vice president of strategic partnerships, workforce development and government affairs.
“Supporting and uplifting veterans is something that has always been a priority for Herzing University,” said Racine. “We want to create pathways for students to apply their previous experiences to any number of our programs and accreditations.”
