I will say that [the ABSN program] is definitely fast paced so make sure that you're prepared for that. It's a lot of hard work, but it's really worth it.

“I got to walk alongside other people who were pursuing the same degree, so as we worked towards our doctorate in education, we were able to collaborate and work together and be a part of the journey with other people who were also mission-focused and very driven in their pursuit of education in our world today.”

I think the quality of education is quite intense, and it is everything that you need it to be in order to be a good nurse.

“I don't care about the glory of it. I just want to help people in the best way that I can. There's a saying that, ‘They may not remember your name, but they remember how you made them feel.’”

The knowledge that you get, the experience that you get and the support that you get makes it worth it. It inspires me to want to be better, to want to show other people that they can be better too.

Hilda decided to become a nurse to find purpose in her life and give back to others. One of the reasons she chose Rockhurst University is the end-to-end support she received along her student nursing journey.

“What I’ll remember the most is the time that I’ve spent directly connecting with my faculty. Some of my instructors have become some of my closest friends, and I continually reach out to them for advice, to share successes or get a different perspective on something—that’s one of the most valuable things I’ve received here.”

“When I discovered Rockhurst was developing an Ed.D. program, a supportive faculty was a key factor for my application. Having completed my M.Ed from Rockhurst University in 2018, I knew firsthand the exceptional level of support that is given by faculty to the students. Considering a research topic that some would consider controversial felt like a risk. However, all of my professors have found ways to not only mention but celebrate diverse populations and cultures, including the LGBTQ+ community in their courses. For that, I am very grateful.
