Arlene enrolled in an online Associate of Science in Nursing degree program with help from The College Network™. “I learned about The College Network from a friend whom I worked with for a brief while. My friend happened to stop by my place of employment and informed me she was continuing her education to become an RN,” Arlene says.
Prioritizing your time and sticking to a schedule is what Arlene says it takes to successfully balance everyday life with earning a degree. “Yes, there are challenges with being a student and balancing everyday life. It is impossible to explain to a four-year-old child that you are studying to improve life for him. As a student, however, you have to learn to prioritize. Setting a daily schedule and sticking to it has been the best balance for me.”
Staying focused on her goal is what motivated Arlene throughout her educational journey, and she has been very successful in doing so. Read more of Arlene's inspirational story or visit our web site to learn more about about our online nursing degree programs.
