    Testimonials

    What I really enjoyed about the collaborative nursing program at the college was the learning environment. Classroom sizes were kept small, which allowed for students to develop confidence amongst their peers, whether it be through open discussion in providing insight into difficult ethical topics or learning clinical skills in the lab with an almost one-to-one approach.
