Stronger through adversity
While she was a student, Stephanie was in car accident and suffered a head injury, causing several neurological issues. Thankfully, she was never in it alone at Penn College.
"I wasn’t given anything I didn’t earn, but my instructors and advisers worked with me so I didn’t have to drop out of school. That means something. My faculty saw my potential. They weren’t easy on me, but they were supportive. I never would’ve gotten to graduation, my first job, my master’s degree with an almost 4.0 GPA, and then my dream job without the faculty who pushed me past my limits – who stayed there in my life as a support system when I wanted to give up. Penn College nursing faculty are not just paid to teach, they get invested in your success when sometimes you can’t see it in yourself."
