Stacie admits going back to college at age 35 was scary. In fact, her biggest fear was that she would fail. But with the help of a lot of people at Delta, she turned her time here into a success.
“If I had to describe Delta in one word it would be caring,” said Stacie, who had started at a university before some family challenges delayed her finishing. “As a transfer student coming it, the process can be a little confusing. But I truly felt that everyone cared for me and made sure that I was in the right program, that I was in the right spot.”
Stacie came to Delta not even thinking about nursing until a counselor suggested her personality and skills were a great fit.
“Delta helped me think big in preparing me for the future by giving me a rock-solid nursing foundation,” she said. “Without Delta College I don’t think that I would be prepared or even feel confident to go out into the world and start working.”
Now with an associate’s degree in hand, Stacie is pursuing her bachelor’s degree in nursing at a university.
Becoming Part of the Delta Family
Though Stacie was only at Delta three semesters, long enough to finish her associate’s degree, she has fond memories of her time here.
“My fellow classmates at Delta were amazing; they were my second home away from home, they were my family,” Stacie said. “They took me in and truly helped me evolve as a person and as a future nurse and I will never have enough good things to say about this school. I have so much respect for the Delta college nursing program. When I stepped on Delta’s campus today it was like coming home.
"I chose Delta because everyone here was just warm and welcoming and I felt like it was one big family and I felt that this was the right place for me to be."

“I would tell everyone, I do tell everyone, go to Delta College,” she added. “When people ask me about going back to nursing school, I have friends that are a little bit older or thinking about doing a career change. I hands down tell them that Delta is a place you want to be.”
