"The UB School of Nursing was my first choice when looking at local and out-of-state nursing programs. I had only heard great things about UB’s School of Nursing, and knew that the competiveness of the program was a strong indication of the high quality level of education.
"UB [SON] is a diverse school where you are able to see a variety of perspectives on health care. They also have state of the art technology to help their students learn and succeed, and [provide] the opportunity for a preceptorship at the end of the program. I also believe what sets UB SON's bachelor’s program apart from the rest is learning the theoretical aspects of nursing culture.
"I am very pleased with my education and Bachelor’s degree from the UB School of Nursing, which has provided me with an invaluable education and a strong networking system. Because of my love for the school and the high values they have taught me during the undergraduate nursing program, I have decided to continue my education at UB in their Family Nurse Practitioner Doctoral Program and am currently in my second year. I could not imagine going anywhere else."
