“As a mom of four children I needed something flexible and online was the best choice. I chose Cincinnati Online because it allowed me to set up my clinicals close to home. I was pleasantly surprised by the experience. The faculty made time to meet with me one-on-one using Skype and I could schedule time with proctors for my tests.”
