Degree: Health Sciences
Graduation Year: 2014

This graduate program had several pros - the first that where the most important and highest on the list in my opinion was the fact that NUHS trains each student to be a primary care physician. What this means is that we are not just chiropractors we are looked at and trained as Doctors of the state of Illinois. Another huge pro of this program was the program offered a bi-degree as well as single degrees, meaning you could get a Doctorate of Chiropractic and a ND as well - Natropathic Doctor, the reason this is a pro is because we got to experience not only medical and chiropractic classes, but also Botantical classes - from the ND side. Another Pro was in a a class which we had 7th trimester I believe (there are 10 Trimesters in the program if you go full time) we had the benefit of working side by side with an ND who was at the same education level as us and what the huge benefit with this was the class was a doctor/patient relationship class and we had to get random live sim patients with made up problems and do our best to diagnose them. Long story short we had DC side and ND side. The biggest CON national faces is that it has so much freaking potential they just need to get a few things situated, BUT the president who just recently took over is basically changing everything around and I am just happy that the future NUHS students will get the benefits that I didn't.

The program is excellent but communication between the Administration and students needs a lot of improvement!

The work level is enhanced by the integrative medicine environment and the collegiality cultivated. Although some course could be integrated and/or delivered in a more comprehensive, holistic way, the program is excellent.

I love the location, being able to live on campus, the facilities (except for the gym) and being able to use the clinic for all of my medical needs for free. Not all of the professors are great and sometimes people do not respond to my e-mails, otherwise I am very happy where I am and the courses that I am taking.

Degree: Liberal Studies
Graduation Year: 2015

Program is very challenging but that is expected for a medical school program. Pursuing a degree in alternative medicine is a passion and calling and being surrounded by like minded students and teachers is exciting! The level of diversity is rather slow which is a bit of a disappointment and career support is non-existent which is unfortunate.

I believe my graduate program at this school is very good because each student has the opportunity to choose if they want to be full time or part time and finished the program in between 3-5 years depends on the course load that each student prefers. Also, all professors are very qualified and have many years of experience not only at this school but in general. Another very important thing is that for each class the university has a tutor that students can go for free and this give the opportunity to all students to have better grades in all classes.

Graduation Year: 2015

I think the best part of National University are the professors. The Professors are dedicated to teaching us valuable information and helping us to apply it on a clinical level. They really want us to be the best health care professionals that we can be. The campus is small so everyone knows one another and are very supportive of each other. The campus facilities are a little outdated but everyday they are making improvements.

Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2014

This ia my first year as a graduate student with National University. The application process is very easy with the online process. The difficulty is ascertaining information on financial aid. If you do not ask the right questions, it is easy to become lost in the system. The admission and financial aid advisors are a little difficult to contact, but they reply back with complete responses. I am sure that once I learn my way around, I will enjoy attending this program..
