Degree: Nursing
Graduation Year: 2016

The program is online, so the evaluation of the surrounding area and social life are based on my limited experiences on campus, usually once a semester for 2 to 3 days. The programs faculty is wonderful. Interaction is easy and support is obvious. A great program, I would highly recommend. The single con which I believe will soon be removed is the use of the Nexus collegiate collaboration which allows schools to offer courses to each other to ensure programs can be fully covered. Currently two courses are offered through this program, in the future I believe all the courses will be offered in-house.

Degree: Occupational Therapy
Graduation Year: 2016

This is a very competitive program to get admitted to. There are less than 16 people in each class which really allows the faculty to get to know each person and help you in the best ways. They have an extremely high pass rate of the national exam, and being a 3 year program really allows them to prepare their students for the boards and the future as professionals.

Degree: Business Administration
Graduation Year: 2009

Though just beginning this program, I have received outstanding support from all people in my department. Because I know many that have completed this program, I feel comfortable assessing its high quality.

Degree: Biomedical Sciences
Graduation Year: 2015

Like any PA program ISU’s is highly competitive. The workload is about what you would expect for a graduate level medicine program. It’s not easy, but it’s doable. The program and faculty are outstanding. Everyone is approachable and genuinely have the students’ best interest in mind. Pocatello is a typical small college town. The social scene isn’t amazing, but you can make your own fun. If you need a big city scene Salt Lake is only a 2 hour drive away. Because it’s a small town, though, the housing options are cheap and plentiful. Anyone would count themselves lucky to be accepted here.

Degree: Health Sciences
Graduation Year: 2012

The pros of this graduate program are that the faculty and staff are readily available and more than willing to help with any question. The cons of this program is the cost of tuition.

Degree: Curriculum & Instruction
Graduation Year: 2016

Pros: I feel the small cohort structure of this program is its primary benefit. As students, we develop strong working relations with our peers and with the small faculty of our program. Cons: The biggest con is the need to revise the schedule frequently to allow us to have large enough classes to "make" the cut off and remain in session.
