What Veterans Have to Say About Us

Richard Thornell
Family Nurse Practitioner, San Antonio Texas
2001 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 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.”

The University of Cincinnati’s Veteran’s Programs and Services center provides assistance with veterans’ benefits and other information regarding service members.
