"Many of the professors were also working on further degree work themselves and actively
engaged in roles within nursing, research, and leadership. This enabled them to understand
the roles we all were juggling during degree work and gave them a more comprehensive
view of nursing's opportunities and challenges beyond the academic realm."
-- Danielle Piper, '19, MSN in Clinical Leadership
