For over a decade, we have pioneered online nursing education across the nation. Our mission is to ensure our graduates are empowered to think critically; advocate for patients and the profession; and explore, generate and apply nursing knowledge in any setting.
All of our nursing degree and certificate programs are accredited by the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education.
