“You get the opportunity to connect with your peers”

“Hey, my name is Kevin from North Carolina. I'm a student in the online FNP program of Carson-Newman University.

"I chose to go here because it matches my family's lifestyle. I'm a full-time nurse in the adult and pediatric emergency departments at my local hospital. And on my days off, I wanted to redeem my time by advancing my practice.

“Professors are accessible and available”

"You get the opportunity to connect with your peers from a diverse background and it's really awesome to know that you're not doing this by yourself. Professors are accessible and available, and your academic advisors check in on a regular basis. I was even encouraged in my first semester to have a better work-life balance to be successful and that meant a lot to me.

“It enhances my ability to integrate faith into practice”

"Carson-Newman lines up with my values as it enhances my ability to integrate faith into practice which is really important to me. You also get peace of mind knowing that you have help with your clinical placement sites and that's a big deal.

“I believe Carson-Newman works for working nurses”

"I believe Carson-Newman works for working nurses, and if you want to be challenged, but have balance and the ability to work at a really good pace,  I encourage you to come here.

"God bless you and have a great one."
