Doctorate Graduation 2017

[Please excuse my long absence as I was dealing with pregnancy sickness as well as putting my efforts into making this graduation mentioned possible].  

May 13th was one of my most memorable days in my life thus far.  It was the day I graduated with my doctorate degree.  I got my doctorate in nursing practice (DNP) specifically.  It was approximately a 2 year process and although not always easy, I would do it again because it was a personal and professional goal with the push of my parents and the support of my husband.  Accomplishing this just meant I had attained the highest level in my field.  I wanted to share this because I sometimes get questions on schools and nursing programs in particular.  Besides the specific questions I answer, I wanted to share this to encourage whoever is in school or considering going to a certain program whether in nursing or not to encourage them to just go for it. 

 I can say that I have never been the most intelligent/smartest in my classes but I have always been determined and hardworking (willing to put in the work).  I believe with the will of God and these qualities, goals such as these can be accomplished.  I am proud to say I'm one of the first in my family with a doctorate degree and I hope this sets the path and inspires others in my family as well as any others that they too can do the same if they wish to.  I did it not just for me but for my family.  The above pictures are a few from my graduation ceremony and graduation party at home thrown by family.  I was thankful for the few family members, friends, and the Virtuous women group (in the matching ankara fabric) in Ohio who flew in to lend a support to their friend my mother and joined the celebration.  It was overall a good day I'm thankful to God for.  Thanks for reading!
