“The staff and the faculty were unbelievable. All the instructors were very supportive and encouraging in guiding us along the way. A lot of people think they’re going to miss that personal connection when they choose an online program, but that’s really not the case. It truly is a real support network all the way across the board.”

“I actually have 17 technical certifications already. So coming to Maryville University and joining this program, it enhanced the skills I already had, and it actually took me further. I knew some of the information, but I was able to get experience using some new tools that are relevant today. And that’s what I love about Maryville — they’re using the tools that are being used in the field now.”

“Initially I was a BSN nursing student, and now a Family Nurse Practitioner student. It’s going to make a huge difference, helping my family and helping the community that I’m from. I chose Maryville because I could go to school and at the same time provide for my family. To me, it was a win-win situation.”
