Degree: Nursing
Graduation Year: 2011

Gwynedd Mercy University allows you to start your clinical rotation in the first semester so you can decide if practicing nursing and providing direct patient care is what you want to specialize your career in, The teachers and clinical instructors were wonderful and there was a variety of clinical sites so you were able to experience different departments in all different locations and learn from all very different individuals.

Gwyn Mercy is such a reliable university to attend. They have clear goals and missions as an university and want you to succeed as a student. I was accepted into my program on a probationary status 2 weeks before class started. I didn't think I would be ready in time, but by the time class started I had financial aid, classes, schedules and all legal paper work settled. I felt ready to start grad school and felt confident in the program before it even began. I was also nervous about "online learning," but by the end of the online orientation and lots of help from faculty I now feel like a technology wiz! During my first course, which are all online, I had open communications with my professor and classmates. My professor emails us regularly to let us know about our grades and is very open to questions and debates and has years of real life experience.

Degree: Educational Leadership
Graduation Year: 2018

I love the freedom of the online classes. The faculty have all been helpful and Dr. Sortino is a wealth of information. Even though I am an online student, I have been on the campus and it is very beautiful. The only concern that I had with the online program is the lack of connectedness. I met with Dr. Sortino and we are looking at bridging that gap with the online graduate students.

Degree: School Counseling
Graduation Year: 2016

This graduate program allows me to get my Master's degree in the field that I love while also working and gaining experience to put on my resume. I am able to work at my own pace which helps me be self-motivated. This will help me in my future career. I will be self-motivated, have excellent time-management skills, and be responsible with the requirements of my job.

Degree: Elementary Education
Graduation Year: 2014

Some teachers give A's for less than stellar work. It makes me frustrated when I always try to give my best effort, and others receive the same grade for significantly less work. I also had a teacher who would not provide any feedback on grades, despite the fact that I sent emails.
