Happy National Nurses Week to all the hard-working nurses out there and to our nearly 2,800 nursing students, who we consider as valued colleagues! SNHU has planned activities throughout the week ahead to celebrate and recognize nurses in honor of National Nurses Week.
To kick off National Nurses Week (May 6-12, 2016), Southern New Hampshire University is sharing the story of Bonnie Fecowicz, a full-time working nurse, a mother and a student in SNHU's online Master of Science in Nursing program. Earning her online BSN and MSN at SNHU has allowed Fecowicz to advance in the field of nursing. As a Director of Nursing Education, she's become a source of inspiration for her own employees and for staff nurses, many of whom are now in SNHU's online BSN program.
Everyone at SNHU is incredibly proud of Fecowicz, not only for her dedication to the field, but also for her unwavering desire to improve patient care through her own education, her role in teaching others and the reason why she feels it's important to be the best nurse you can be.
SNHU's online nursing program was designed by nurses, for nurses who need a flexible and affordable way to earn their nursing degree. Students in the university's online nursing programs are viewed as respected colleagues, who come to the learning environment with skills and knowledge from their own unique experiences personally and professionally. Rooted in traditional academic systems, SNHU's nursing programs bring the same academic traditions of quality and integrity to the online environment. The Bachelor of Science and Master of Science programs are accredited by the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education. Ready to advance in your nursing career?

0:12 can be because it is someone's loved one that's lying in that bed and I wouldn't
0:18 expect anything less of someone who cared for my own family, so I've always got
0:24 to bring my A-game. Not only am I a full-time working nurse, but I'm a mom
0:29 with children as well as a student at Southern New Hampshire University. The
0:35 quality of the program has allowed me to advance my career into more diverse

Refugees are not the hopeless faces often featured on the news. They are hardworking, talented people who are smart, able, and can pursue higher education if given the opportunity.
