Graduate Education Student

My journey at Misericordia began as an undergraduate student in the Early Childhood and Special Education program. Upon quickly becoming employed immediately after graduation, I looked to pursue a graduate program that was flexible, accredited, and honored a small class size to accommodate the needs students. Without a second thought, I chose Misericordia University's Reading Specialist Master's Degree Program!

I have had the opportunity to interact with professors not only well-versed in the ever-changing content in Education and the specialist aspects of Reading, but professors who are currently working in these fields. Classes are broken down into manageable parts to accommodate my full-time occupation and even allow me to have time on the weekends to spend with my family. I am working to finish the program in an accelerated manner and Misericordia allows me to do this.

My experience in the Diagnostic Medical Sonography program at Misericordia University was one of my most challenging, but one of the most rewarding journeys I have embarked upon. The DMS program is not only designed for you to become a great technologist, but the program really gears you up to become a successful medical professional.

The DMS staff are incredible. I appreciated all the staff, because they saw me as an individual, with my own learning abilities and skills. The staff always went above and beyond to help me, so that I can achieve my goals.

I highly recommend the Diagnostic Medical Sonography program at Misericordia to anyone looking for a rewarding career. I had to put in hard work, and I made sacrifices, but in the end, I felt extremely prepared and ready to embark on my new career path. The DMS program molded me to be a successful Ultrasound Technologist today and I couldn’t be happier with my decision.

Health Science: Patient Navigation Specialization

Amanda Rando '18

When I first applied for the Patient Navigation program, I wasn’t sure what to expect; but after taking the first course, I had a better understanding of what a patient navigator does and how we can really help people in the community.

Many of my courses throughout the program have helped prepare me for my current job as a Community Health Assistant (Patient Navigator). I often find myself using certain techniques that I learned throughout my course of study to help assist me when caring and talking with patients. I really enjoy my job with Geisinger at Home because I am able to help patients in ways that they didn’t think was possible.
