The reason I decided to come to SPU was because of its renounced Nursing program. It's one of the best in the state!

I love my school, but my first year experience wasn't the greatest. This was not a reflection however on the quality of my education or the quality of the school itself, rather the choices that I made. I can guarantee that I made the right choice in choosing my school.
