“Before attending NAU I was jumping around in the medical field as a PCA and a nursing assistant. I never thought about going to school to get a degree until my daughter was enrolled at NAU. I was tired of the go no-where career and my daughter’s upcoming graduation motivated me to enroll in school. Seeing her daughter about to finish her degree helped Mary see the opportunities she could have by also earning her degree. The support that I receive from her and my family is what helps to keep me on track towards my goals.”
Mary Goetz (student)
