"Overall, the process of getting my BSN has bettered me in so many ways. It has been worth every minute. I wish there was a way that it could be less expensive, so more nurses would pursue their BSN. I can see how teachers for online courses can make or break a student’s experience. All of my teachers have “made” the experience worth the time and money. I would recommend to any nurse to get their BSN and I would happily recommend Grand View as a good choice."

"I feel as though nurses who have undergone training and teaching on the importance of lifelong learning, critical inquiry, nurturing self and caring relationships, cultural competency, and empowering and influencing others are better equipped to take care of patients as a well-rounded nurse. Baccalaureate-prepared nurses who see and understand the value of these core competencies are prepared to provide holistic care to patients and form caring relationships with people they encounter."

“Sherri has not only been an instructor to me, but also a friend. She genuinely cares about how her students are doing and makes herself available when she sees that help is needed. For me, I got the privilege of having her as an instructor 2 semesters in a row, which gave me a chance to open up about things in my life that were affecting my coursework. Even after those courses, I have still been able to reach out to her about things and she has always been a good listener and supporter. I will always consider her a close friend of mine even after I graduate Grand View.” - Dumbari Taoh
