Craig Patton is a father, husband and Wilkes University MSN–PMHNP student working full-time as an RN. With such a busy life, how does he balance it all? These three benefits of a Wilkes education explain how he manages it so well.
For senior Jessica Turnitza, her most impactful lesson at Wilkes University came from a change in plans. After graduating from Pottsville Area High School, Turnitza chose Wilkes to pursue three of her passions: nursing, swimming and Air Force ROTC. She was heartbroken when a medical disqualification ended her military aspirations. Then a former major told her, “Either find a way or make a way.”
