Our Graduate Success Stories
I really like my teachers a lot. They really care and they don't want you to fail. They are there if you need them. If you do fail something, you only have yourself to blame, because the teachers try to help you in every way possible.

What career opportunities are available for nurse educators?
Nursing schools nationwide are struggling to find new faculty to accommodate the rising number of new students. This shortage provides many job opportunities. It also affords a higher level of job security and provides career options for those who wish to maintain dual roles as educators and direct patient care providers.
