Because of the online option and it was recommended by WELCOA.

The wealth of information that coincides with the CHES certification and direct application to corporate wellness.

question What advice would you give to a prospective online student?

Time management is important. Having the free time to focus on reading, responding to discussion questions and papers is critical. Be interested in the subject matter, see how you can apply what you are learning to either your current position or future position.

question How has your degree from NMC helped you progress in your career?

I applied for a  high profile position and while I wasn't chosen (only 3 were), I was encouraged as the next in line. I answered all the questions in the interview to a tee due to my studies at NMC. While they were impressed, others had more experience than I. I look forward to gaining the experience to achieve my goals of helping many people make healthy lifestyle changes. I feel prepared to enter the workforce as a well informed wellness professional. I also feel confident to serve my community as a consultant to small businesses and offer programs to community members.
