"I was able to have a course schedule that fit my needs and timeframe. I was never pressured to take more courses than I could handle and was fully in charge of my learning, plus all my instructors were amazing! Everything I learned through the Clarkson College RN to BSN program is going to make me a better nurse, and for that, I can’t thank the College enough for the opportunity to complete their program."
