Darlene Reijers, Associate in Applied Science in Nursing, 2022

Darlene Reijers, of Bridgewater, New Jersey, earned an Associate in Applied Science in Nursing from Excelsior University (then Excelsior College) in 2022. Reijers shares, “I am so blessed to have finally finished my nursing RN degree. I would have never been able to complete a full-time traditional nursing program. The online classes at Excelsior and the support I received from the staff made it possible for me to achieve my RN. As a single mom with five children, it was not easy. I would study late at night after the children went to sleep and schedule my exams at a pace and time that was convenient for me. It was not an overwhelming experience, and classes were affordable (while working a full-time job and managing the household). I am forever grateful for this college and this experience, and blessed with a better job to provide care for my family!”
