My view

"After the wonderful experience that I had at Villanova University for my undergraduate degree, I knew I wanted to come back to Villanova "my home" for my master's. The outstanding education along with the most dedicated professors makes Villanova's College of Nursing one of a kind. The College of Nursing has a great reputation which is why graduates from Villanova are respected and their expertise is valued. Being a part of this community will not only prepare you to be a competent practitioner it will also prepare you to be a great leader in this profession."
