Linfield Sets the Bar High for Alicia Wayland

“The faculty members have made my education valuable. I receive feedback on all the assignments that I complete. That propels me forward to be a better student.”


by Faith Hardersen, current Linfield student

Linfield Online and Continuing Education student Alicia knew it was time to go back to school when a fellow nurse practitioner inspired her to check out online RN to BSN programs. After exploring some options, Alicia was astounded by the attention she received from Linfield’s admission and advising staff; she said the attention was “unparalleled at other schools that I inquired about.”

Since attending Linfield, Alicia has found that the faculty not only teaches the new material, but they are sources of inspiration and guidance for her. She has now been encouraged to pursue her MSN, followed by her DNP, all thanks to the supportive faculty at Linfield. And even though all of Alicia’s courses are online, she has learned to love and thrive in the online learning environment and looks forward to completing most of the assignments “because I love learning new things.”

The small college experience that Linfield provides shines even through the online program. “The customer service that I received by (admission counselor) Jessica and (academic advisor) Leah to get me started was the BEST thing for me. That has impacted me the most. They believed in my abilities and pushed me forward.” Now that Alicia is starting to look forward to graduate schools, she is finding that she is not getting the same experience as she received through Linfield. “Linfield has set my standards high when searching for graduate programs.” But once Alicia has her BSN, she knows that her patients will be in better hands and she will receive immediate rewards for all of her hard work.
