What Do Our Students Say?
Your classmates will become not only colleagues but family. You will find yourself developing & ultimately becoming a competent nurse, prepared with the tools necessary to overcome the obstacles in your future practice.
I chose UTMB because of the small class sizes and cohort style. The flexibility of online classes was appealing and the required courses provide a comprehensive curriculum needed to be successful in executive leadership roles.
What I love about UTMB is the diversity among our student population and the opportunities it provides for a variety of clinical experiences at some of the most well recognized hospitals in the nation.
The core courses and the onsite clinical skill assessment check off with standardized patients helped prepare me to provide added expertise in the clinical settings as a clinical nurse educator.
I wanted a program that would hold its value and give me an advantage when finding a job. It worked - my preceptors and several other medical professionals have remarked about how good the program is at UTMB.
