As an LPN, I already had a little bit of experience, but I knew that I wanted to hone my skills and knowledge. So, I decided to continue my education and become an RN!

Herzing University was fast-paced which helped me finish school in a short time, and their commitment to support active duty military personnel was wonderful. They offered credits for military training, assistance for schedule conflicts and, of course, they offered military scholarships.

I had so many helpful people around me during my studies, including my lecture advisors, clinical advisors and skills lab advisors! They all made sure I understood the skills being taught thoroughly and that I was confident with them. They were able to take complex topics and teach them in the simplest way, which is always a huge help.

The most challenging thing I faced was addressing scheduling conflicts due to my military annual training that was two weeks long. It took place during my spring semester, and I couldn’t prepare myself well enough for an exam, resulting in my worst ever grade. However, I pushed forward and eventually pulled it off! I passed that semester, and I’m so proud of myself!

Currently, I’m having another challenging time since my unit is set for a medical deployment to Iraq that may get in the way of me taking my NCLEX-RN. But I am hopeful! I hope to pass my NCLEX-RN and find a department that will best provide me with the experience to become a trauma nurse in a field hospital. I know I’ll be able to make it!
