“[…] You may remember assisting a rather unhappy faculty member who was distressed by comments and revisions on a doctoral proposal manuscript. I thought you would like an update on my progress. After meeting with you, I felt more confident in my abilities and was able to read the Reviewer comments with a less sensitive frame of mind. I made revisions as I thought needed and looked for the few small things you had pointed out. When I turned in the final manuscript I was more confident that I had done it right, and the feedback bore that out. I had very few minor revisions, and the reviewer even complimented me throughout the manuscript. At this time I am waiting for confirmation from my program that the final revisions were sufficient. Thank you!” ~ Deborah A. Mathias MSN, RN
