Hear from a Nursing Alumnus
"This was one of the best opportunities I have ever had in my educational experience. Getting a full semester worth of practice and experiences in the clinical setting really advanced me and prepared me to feel comfortable to be a successful RN after I graduate and pass NCLEX. I am grateful for my time living and working in the city. I had been planning on living in North Carolina after college, but I have enjoyed my time so much in the city that I will be staying and working here for at least a couple years!"
