"The nursing program had a great pass for the NCLEX (Nursing licensure exam). I wanted to go to a school that would prepare me to be a great nurse, and I believe Newman did that. It was really a family atmosphere. I’m still in contact with some of my professors and I believe the professors make or break the experience. They’re very genuine at Newman."
