"I recommended Penn State Abington to all of my friends."
- Mena Mata, RN
"The faculty and staff helped us adjust."
Abington opened up new opportunities for Barbara and Ed Hall. Even with decades of nursing experience between them, it became clear during the last few years that their career options were limited without B.S. degrees. As Ed, who works in a cardiac care unit, said, "No bachelor's degree, no interview."
Although the couple were apprehensive about returning to the classroom, they now say their experience couldn't have gone more smoothly.
"The faculty and staff helped us adjust, and it was great being in classes with nurses who have a lot of different experiences," Barbara, a nurse in a step-down intensive care unit, said.
