“When I became a graduate student at Eastern, I hoped that my classes would be meaningful to my practice as a school nurse.  I am thrilled to say that my expectations have been met and, in fact, exceeded.  The classes in which I have been enrolled assisted me in expanding my professional knowledge and my ability to provide holistic care to my patients. Utilizing Brightspace as a communication tool has enabled me to feel very connected to and supported by the Eastern community. I look forward to continuing my studies at Eastern and to achieving my professional and intellectual best.”
