Degree: Nursing
Graduation Year: 2016

The graduate programs are highly rated among employers in the area and give us a lot of value for the amount that we pay. Furthermore, the support received from faculty and program directors are unmatched. The curriculum is engaging and I couldn't have asked for more in a graduate program.

I am able to get a Masters Degree in Nursing within a short period of time. The faculty and staff are very helpful. It is expensive attending graduate school.

The pros of this program is it is one of the best in state. The school is small and so is the program. 99.3% of their graduating student pass the NCLEX-RN. The program is very challenging, which I believes prepares you after school. Only con is they only offer one scholarship for the program, which is the only scholarship offered for grad school.

My graduate program is amazing in respect to the professors and quality of education. The MSN program has a state of the art simulation lab and the campus community is very supportive. The city and all it offers is only 15 minutes away, with easy access and bus transportation available. The cons are that the program is expensive and without outside financial help it is very difficult to balance finances. If you have a significant other, as many of the students do, it helps with the cost and when you graduate the debts will supposedly be reasonable to deal with.

A major con for the program is that each class is only offered one time per year. So if a student struggles and fails one class they either sit out for a whole year or they move on to another program that offers the class they need more than once per year.

I really enjoy the faculty and small class sizes, the availability of staff and professors to meet outside of class and the overall campus scene. It is a beautiful campus. The only down side I think is the cost of the College. It is expensive but relative to the eduaction and experience I guess it is acceptable!

The MAGELIN program at MSJ is a great learning experience. It is fast (only 15 mo and you're done), you learn a lot of valuable information, they have a great lab and supporting technology, and the faculty are extremely supportive and helpful. The students in the program are motivated and intelligent, which really increases the quality of the education and experience. There are no cons I can think of. There is a lot of work to do, but this is expected in an accelerated program. And the workload is easily doable, you just need a little dedication.
