ST. MARY-OF-THE-WOODS, Ind. (WTHI) – A 72 year old nurse who told us she’s going back to school fulfills that promise to herself.

Tracy Thomas is now officially a student at St. Mary-of-the-Woods College!

She has enrolled in on-line nursing courses.

Tracy is one of 42 students in the program looking to convert their RN to a BSN.

“They like the individual attention” said Nursing Director Marcia Miller.  “They like the value added approach.  We are very student-centered, so we will help technology.  We will tutor you in any course you are having difficulty with.”
