Great program, however things are at times unorganized. The faculty is extremely helpful and are dedicated to student success. Some class content needs to be refined.

The University of South Florida College of Nursing offers high-quality education to students in pursuance of their undergraduate as well as graduate degrees. The Nurse Practitioner programs are highly competitive, diverse, and successful. The only drawbacks for me, as a commuter student, is the 3 hour drive to and from class and clinicals. However, it is a small price to pay for such high-quality education and I chose it, and the higher-tuition rate over the less expensive and much closer universities.

I feel the pros are the convenience of taking most classes online which allows an individual to continue to work full time. The cons would be the disorganization of the program.

The faculty and staff associated with my program have been wonderful in terms of support and guidance. I feel challenged in my program and strive to keep achieving more. I do wish there were more options for live classes, as most of them are offered online. Overall, it has been a great experience so far.

The University of South Florida's graduate nursing program is extremely competitive. The professors are all very knowledgeable and helpful. The workload is extremely intense but the faculty and staff as well as fellow students are all extremely supportive and committed to your success.

The Pros of grad school is that it forces you out of your comfort zone and allows you to take risk. You meet lots of new friends and it's a whole new life experience. Grad school gives you the chance to specialize in something. It gives you the chance to truly dive into the field that you love and in the end obtain a good career and happy life. The cons of grad school include the expense for the numerous applications you sent out. That is the only con about grad school I can think of. I think success in grad school takes a lot of hard work and motivation.
