"I entered the DNP program to build upon my 18 years as a pediatric nurse practitioner. I chose Illinois State because of the history of their strong nursing program for BSN and MSN students. With being 100% online I was able to juggle working and my family with 5 boys. The professors were supportive all along the way and realized we were already professionals and treated us as such. I completed the program with a sense of family due to the involvement of the faculty in helping me achieve my goals."
