I chose to go to Iowa because I wanted to graduate from a reputable program with a degree that held merit compared to other programs. The program afforded flexibility without compromising quality through a blended learning style allowing me to fulfill family and military obligations.
In both my undergrad and graduate programs [at Iowa] I have learned from experienced nursing professionals who not only have great knowledge of nursing but care about my success and future. I have made connections that will last a lifetime, and it has been an experience I wouldn’t change for anything.
After completing BSN studies at Iowa and working as an RN for five years, I decided to acquire the knowledge and skills necessary to respond and deliver care in a more holistic manner. The focus and insistence on career goals and pathway is phenomenal at Iowa, and I’m comfortable and confident where this program is leading me to.
