satisfy my desire to have a relationship with my patients while also being involved in the acute care side of it was well. Another reason that I chose Walden University is that it offered the flexibility that I needed to fit school into my very busy life. I know that education is an important part of my career but I am also looking forward to showing my kids how important it is. The flexibility that Walden provides will help me show my kids that pursuing a Master’s degree while working and raising a family is an attainable goal. Our world is ever changing and diversifying. As nurses, we will care for people from all walks of life as well as many different countries and cultures. Walden School of Nursing offers a
program that is “academically rigorous and culturally relevant” (Walden, 2017b, para 1). This ensures that the product of this program produces not only an academically adept nurse, but a culturally conscious one as well. Overall, I am very excited to start this journey into advanced education. The road will be long and hard, but I will strive to complete it. In the end, I am sure that I will find that it has all been worth it.
