Stacie has a passion for helping people. After 24 years of customer service, she wanted to do more. So despite some reservations, she enrolled in the nursing program at Delta and is on track for an exciting new career.
“I had a lot of fears when I decided to go back to school,” Stacie says. “I was 35 and I think the biggest fear was that I was going to fail. (But) I have always felt that the scarier the things are the better, and nursing school was very scary, so I figured it was something I had to do.”
Stacie credits Delta for giving her the confidence to pursue her dream. She had attended two universities before, but at Delta she found the perfect fit.
“At Delta, I felt that everyone cared for me and treated me as a person, not just a number,” she says. “I don’t think I would have been prepared to go out into the world and start working without Delta. This was the right place for me to be.”
Great Place to Learn and Grow
Stacie says the Delta nursing program facilities and technologies exceeded her expectations and provided her with the experience she’ll need to succeed.
“The sim lab is amazing,” Stacie says. “I spent hours in there studying and practicing different techniques. During clinicals, I got the chance to see a leg amputation that I might never see again.”
"When I step on Delta’s campus it’s like coming home. Delta took me in and truly helped me evolve as a person and as a future nurse."
Delta Graduate, Registered Nursing
Stacie graduated with her associate’s in Nursing (ADN) and hopes to work in an ER or cardiac ICU. She is finishing her bachelor’s degree, but Delta will have a place close to her heart.
“When I step on Delta’s campus it’s like coming home,” Stacie says. “My classmates at Delta were amazing. They took me under their wing and were my home away from home. Delta took me in and truly helped me evolve as a person and as a future nurse. I will never have enough good things to say about this school.”
