Student Testimonials

This program gave me the knowledge and skills for leadership positions as an RN, as well as expansive critical thinking skills. The program also equipped me with a public health certification; a unique addition to the BSN degree upon completion.

Due to my daughter being high risk for COVID-19, the pandemic put my nursing goals on hold. This program was a godsend to keep my education continuing and opening new paths for me in the medical field.
