I thoroughly enjoyed my PhD journey at Villanova University M. Louise Fitzpatrick College of Nursing. I called this journey as “The journey of personal and professional growth”, where I identified my strengths and expanded them to learn new inquiry, knowledge, and skills.
The faculty at VU College of Nursing are experts and are known by their scholarly contributions on academia and nursing practice. They provided to me constructive honest feedback to expand my knowledge and to prepare me as a nurse scientist. Additionally, there was a constant support to build my research ability, involve in research activities, and present scientific papers at International Nursing Conferences. Surely, I accomplished my goals and objectives. At Villanova University, I felt like home.
