Military Spouse Becomes Doctor Through Online Education Dr. Sonya Blevins is an RN and Associate Dean of Nursing at Southern New Hampshire University. She’s also a military spouse who understands that nothing in life is guaranteed.

“When my husband died, that could have made things difficult from a financial and professional development perspective,” Sonya said. “However, I had my education.”

Armed with two graduate degrees she earned online – a Master of Science and Doctorate of Nursing practice – Sonya was able to provide for her family, even in the face of tragedy.

Now, her story helps motivate other military spouses facing PCS moves and other transitions. “As a military spouse, education is key,” Sonya said. “It provides the opportunity to seek those jobs that may be hard to get, or limited, based on where you are located.”
