Degree: Nursing
Graduation Year: 2017

There are many pros to my graduate program. The main one is the quality of education that I will be receiving. UCLA School of Nursing is a program that embraces outreach, education, and hard-work. I feel very grateful to be part of this graduate program and I look forward in contributing to the nursing field. The con is that the program is expensive and very demanding since it is an accelerated program. But I know that after successfully completing this rigorous program I will be able to do what I have always dreamt of: proving care to patients.

Degree: Nursing
Graduation Year: 2016

The UCLA School of Nursing Master of Science in Nursing program in the family nurse practitioner specialty is focused on preparing registered nurses to become primary care providers through the life span. I believe that this is one of the best family nurse practitioner programs in the nation because students have the opportunity to rotate at Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center, the best hospital on the west coast. Both NP students and MD students take the same classes together and this allows for a collaborative way of learning between the two disciplines. Being part of one of the world's top research institutions, the School of Nursing at UCLA allows their NP students not only to learn advance practice knowledge, but also to generate new knowledge through research. This School truly is redefining nursing.

Degree: Nursing

UCLA has an amazing healthcare network, which provides in depth teaching and the ability for excellent clinical learning in the hospital setting. The program is very competitive but the school of nursing has a huge diversity within the cohort. People of all ages, ethnic backgrounds and education levels are integrated into the program providing a more rounded experience.

Degree: Nursing
Graduation Year: 2015

I am starting the MSN program at UCLA this fall, so I am currently taking only one summer course. From my limited experience, UCLA is an incredible institution. I have had the privilege of meeting a few of our Nursing Faculty and I am impressed by their knowledge, support, and openness to help and answer all types of questions. I have conversed with a few other staff members, such as the Director of Financial Aid and I am amazed by their kindness, patience, and helpfulness. The UCLA campus is a mix of beautiful, majestic buildings and greenery. The environment supports student growth and it is clear that the faculty deem student success a priority. Also, our program offers a number of scholarships and fellowships, which make financing a graduate degree possible. The Nursing Program at UCLA is one of the top programs in the nation and from my experience, it is not hard to see why that is the case.
