Alumni Testimonial: Julie Spooker

Alumni Testimonial: Julie Spooker 

I had been working as an independent ventilator RN, as well as working through Maxim as an Agency RN. I have wanted to pursue further education since my graduation as an RN (Associate Degree) in 1993. With small children at that time, single-parent status, long work hours and inflexibility of work schedule to attend on-ground degree studies, I waited over ten years to attempt attending college again. My oldest son had enrolled at Herzing in Madison and I decided to stop waiting and do something I needed to do for myself—return to school.  I was able to do my Bachelor’s Degree completely online while working 56-hour weeks and still completed multiple diploma programs and certifications simultaneously. It hasn’t been easy doing all that I do, but I am hoping to transition into a new or extended career after graduation and go for my Master’s Degree. Don’t wait until the time is right…the time is now!
