Degree: Nursing
Graduation Year: 2015

The University of Arizona's nursing program is a good program that will prepare you for the rigors of nursing. Faculty is approachable and always willing to help. Financial aid is difficult to deal with and the cost of obtaining a degree at the University of Arizona is expensive relative to the alternative of becoming a nurse

The learning methods for online education are various, beneficial, and easy to learn. Phoenix is well known and popular for online education, has various degrees for all college levels, and has its professionals keep in close contact with students.

Degree: Nursing
Graduation Year: 2017

Very challenging but requires students to demonstrate self-motivation and drive. Work load is heavy, making the program a top priority and often leaving little room for other activities. However these rigors set individuals up for the reality of the career and allow a true assessment of readiness.

Degree: Nursing
Graduation Year: 2016

This is a highly competitive program at a top ranked school. The quality of the program shows through the hard work and fast past course load. You can tell the faculty care about you and want you to succeed. Only 25% of applicants get in and After my first semester I am so glad I made the choice to go here. GO CATS!

Degree: Nursing
Graduation Year: 2015

Because I join the College of Nursing from Phoenix and not their main campus in Tucson, the main drawback is the video conferencing for lectures. But I love the excellent one-on-one time with the professors and the smaller class size, which are unique to Phoenix. The workload is insanely busy, but I love every minute of it.

Degree: Nursing
Graduation Year: 2014

The U of A nursing program is ranked 6th in the nation. I have learned much in the online masters program and can see the value of all the classes I have taken. The instructors and knowledgeable, helpful and responsive to students.

Degree: Nursing
Graduation Year: 2016

The pros are that the research education for doctoral students and the research actually done by faculty is phenomenal and pertinent. Faculty are very helpful, and required textbooks are often updated to the current year-meaning that we are being taught the most current content available. Cons are that the technology is constantly updated, which is good, but delays communication between faculty and students sometimes or causes glitches in the asynchronous learning environment.

Degree: Nursing

Pros are that it is online and it allows me to work and have a life while continuing education. Cons is that it may be hard to work with classmates since it is online
