We had instructors who were truly passionate about what they were teaching, and you could feel it. They were invested in our success because they wanted us to be the best nurses possible. This means that they were willing to support us at any time, including late nights and weekends. The Idaho Falls Campus gave us incredible opportunities for learning within the classroom, skills lab, simulation lab, and clinical experiences. This program not only allows me to be successful as a nurse, but it has created lifelong relationships with my classmates. I am truly grateful for the instructors, along with all the support for the entire faculty team, and my classmates who made this experience not just full of learning but made it enjoyable with unforgettable moments.”
