Degree: Physical Therapy
Graduation Year: 2017

Georgia Regents University has great professors from what I have seen in the interview process and on my visits to the campus. I start in May of this year so all of my ratings are based on what I have seen on my visits and what I have read online and personally experienced in terms of apartment hunting and travel around Augusta. I am very excited to start the program and I feel the only on is that I have out of state tuition this year.

I am very pleased with my decision to attend the GRU PA Program. The faculty and staff are truly great. I would recommend this program to all students interested in pursuing a career as a Physician Assistant.

Degree: Nursing
Graduation Year: 2016

The Georgia Regents University graduate program for Nurse Anesthesia is demanding mentally, physically, and financially. By being the only nurse anesthesia program in the state of Georgia, Georgia Regents University must be able to provide an environment condusive for graduation to occur. I feel that the faculty perfectly balances rigorous course work with tools to succeed. Although this program will be the hardest educational experience for me to date I am confident Georgia Regents University will prepare me for my career ahead.

Degree: Physician Assistant
Graduation Year: 2016

I highly recommend the Physician Assistant Program at Georgia Regents University!! The average class size is 40-43 students, which is definitely a benefit because we meet weekly with a professor in a small group setting. GRU emphasizes diversity and the students come from various backgrounds. The tuition is very reasonable in comparison to other PA programs. The faculy is willing to helps the students in any way possible, and they always have an open-door policy!

Degree: Biomedical Sciences
Graduation Year: 2013

Pros-Small class size (~35-30 people);Since GHSU merged with Augusta State University there are now opportunities to lecture undergraduate classes for cash. The program pays you via stipends without any requirement for teaching duties. Therefore you get paid to earn your degree. Cons-Minimum academic career support for non-benchwork related careers. It's located in a slow moving town which could be a pro or con depending on your taste. I would describe Augusta as a great town to 1) raise a family and 2) retire but not for young single individuals that want a thriving social scene. The city also offers an excellent cost of living.

Degree: Biomedical Sciences
Graduation Year: 2015

I believe the pros of my graduate program include the program's level of subject taught and the preparedness level for our national boards. Furthermore, the professors and faculty are more than willing to help and nurture our education. One of the cons I believe with the program are the methods of communication for the online courses. The website being used is not the most user-friendly and does not allow for in program emailing.

The Nurse Anesthesia program at GHSU (now Georgia Regents University) is run by competent, informed, and caring faculty that display a real working knowledge of the material that they teach. An excellent school choice for anyone interested in nurse anesthesia.

Degree: Biomedical Sciences
Graduation Year: 2015

As I do not begin my program until the fall, I can not give a very detailed answer. However, thus far the pros of my program are the advisors and faculty working in the Department of MLIRS are beyond helpful and forthcoming with information. I look forward to being a student at this university and apart of my program.
