As a wife of a special forces soldier there are many struggles an Army family faces. On a daily basis I am a nurse, mother and army wife; but I was determined to go back to school and pursue my master’s degree as an MSN Family Nurse Practitioner. I am thankful that my husband’s past and continued service to this country has allowed me to do that. The Post 9/11 GI Bill allowed him to transfer his education eligibility to me so as I continue to support him in his career he can continue to support me in pursuing mine.”

“After four long, hard years in the military, I was sure that transitioning to college was going to be just as hard and grueling. The Veterans Services office at Felician College proved my assumptions wrong. They bent over backwards and made my transition from military to student life seem effortless. With their support, college doesn’t seem impossible or intangible anymore.”  USN MM2 (SW)
