Thoughts About Roberts:

Roberts Wesleyan College provides a unique atmosphere for students to develop into caring professional nurses with strong clinical expertise.  Here, ethics and beliefs are openly valued and explored.  Teaching at Roberts provides me the opportunity to dialogue with faculty, staff and students about the weighty matters of life and death, like our dependence upon God and our deepest human need, salvation and forgiveness.  I am thankful to be in an environment where I can post scripture verses, pray with students, and can express my faith openly.
