Dear Future Death Care Professionals, 

Are you in need of a little encouragement and direction? Are you thinking about going to mortuary school, but feel anxiety about applying? Are you enrolled in school, but struggling with your courses? If so, this is for you!!!

Mortuary school was one of the best, yet most stressful and intense experiences in my life.  I remember what it was like to be in your shoes. Mortuary students have a special place in my heart and I have thought long and hard about the Top 10 Tips for Success that I wish someone would have shared with me. My prayer is that you will leave this 22-minute self study e-course feeling inspired, courageous, and capable of succeeding in mortuary school and beyond. 

I also pray that you recognize how truly powerful, amazing, and necessary you are. You have faced a fear that so many run from on a daily basis. You have accepted that your reality will be a little different from those around you. You have embarked on a journey that at times can and will feel lonely and terrifying.
