Hear from a Graduate
“I spent 21 years in the Air Force as a critical care nurse. Because I was deployed frequently, I couldn’t go back to school in person, so I chose University of Cincinnati Online. I started my MSN when I was living in South Carolina and completed my clinicals while living in Italy. The program was flexible and was well established online.”
