Learning Center Experience
Over 20 years ago, Andrea Fuller-Williams earned her
bachelor’s degree in nursing from Mercy College in Dobbs Ferry, New York. She
always wanted to earn her master’s degree, but as a single mom, she decided to
put her education on hold to raise her son.
Once her son had completed school and gotten married, Andrea
wanted to keep a promise she had made to herself that she would go back to
“This is a time when I need to put both the academic with
the practical,” Andrea said.
She kept her promise.
Andrea enrolled in Kaplan University in 2013 feeling confident
that she chose the right school to further her education.
“I had a good feeling from the beginning. The first person
that spoke to me was quite welcoming, and so I thought I just didn't need to go
too much further.”
During her time at the University, Andrea specifically
remembers her experiences with her professors, who were patient and listened,
yet were also tough. She frequently interacted with her advisors as well.
“Whenever I called they were quite great. Because I was not, when I started,
computer savvy. So I had to call many times with questions, ‘How do I do this?’
and I was directed accordingly,” she admits.
Andrea graduated from Kaplan University in August of 2015
with a master’s degree in nursing administration.
Since her graduation, Andrea was promoted to director of
nursing in the intake department for a home- care agency, which provides
services for members in their homes.
She didn’t always think she would reach this level in her
career. Andrea said, “That was always my goal, my motto. You can do it. I
probably didn’t think it would have been director. I thought just a manager.”
Andrea’s advice to others who put their education on hold is,
"You are never too old to go back to school. If you never met your dreams
when you were younger, you should still continue to aspire for that dream.
Kaplan University is the school to choose for that dream."
